Crush red chillies,garlic and onion to a coarse mixture,keep it aside.
Heat oil in a pan add the crushed chilly garlic mixture and saute till raw smell has disappeared.
Add the shrimp and fry in high flame till colour changes.
Lower the flame and add the salt, brown sugar, soy sauce, fish sauce and sauté for couple minutes.
Add stock or water if the mixture is dry,cook till shrimp is cooked well.
Lastly add the basil leaves sauté and switch off the stove.
Do not cook too much once the basil is added you will loose it's flavor.
