I have been trying to recreate the perfect Thai Drunken noodles at home for a while now, and this may just be my most successful recipe attempt yet!!

Spicy, fragrant and whipped up in under half an hour - what is not to love!!



  • 2 red bird’s eyes chillis
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
  • 400g flat rice noodles
  • 200g uncooked prawns
  • 1 teaspoon dark soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 1 teaspoon light soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 30g green beans, cut into 2.5cm
  • 30g spring greens, shredded
  • 20g baby sweetcorn, quartered lengthways
  • 20g long red chillis, finely sliced
  • 1 handful of holy basil leaves

  • Using a pestle and mortar, pound together the chillis and garlic to form a rough paste.
  • Heat the oil in a wok set over a high heat. 
  • Add the garlic and chilli mixture and stir fry for 30 seconds until fragrant. 
  • Add the flat noodles to the pan and stir-fry for 1 minute, until soft.
  • Stir in the prawns, dark soy sauce, light soy sauce, fish sauce and sugar and mix well to combine.
  • Stir-fry for 30 seconds, then add the green beans, sweetcorn, sliced chillis and holy basil to the wok. 
  • Stir-fry for about 2 minutes, until the vegetables are just cooked through. 
  • Remove from the heat and serve immediately
