The ingredients were shown in the picture, some shrimps, 1 packet of instant noodle (pre-cooked to al dente), about 2 cloves of garlic, a bit of julienned bell peppers and onions, a handful of basil, and, of course, Nam-prik Pao (chilli Paste).

I make my own Nam-prik Pao, but when I am desperate I buy the Pantainorasingh Brand.

To make this dish, begin with a hot pan, add to it some oil, then the onions. Sweat them a little, then in goes the garlic (chopped), the shrimps, the bell peppers, a few splash of fish sauce then stir everything around well. Add a table spoon or two of the Nam-prik Pao, depending on taste. Next goes the cooked noodle, stir everything around again, taste it to check the seasonings. Throw in one or two smashed bird-eye chillies if you want more heat. The basil leaves go in last, turn off the heat. You're done.
