Spicy Thai Noodles

What's the dish for the day? Obviously, its a noodle dish. Yes. Noodles again (Fried Kuey TeowFried Mee. Laksam Noodles & Hokkien Mee). No, no, not the same kinda (Lamb Pho/Vietnamese Noodle Soup). Not the same. Trust me (Mee Rebus Vegetarian &. Chinese Vegetarian Noodle Soup). This is the simplicity, elevated by store-bought sauces which have been sitting in my fridge and I, as you know, am someone who fancy using up whatever vegetables in the fridge as well (Tom Yum Prawn Fried Rice)? Rather a convenient matter actually if you considering such Spicy Thai Noodles. Basically, lemme tell you that anything goes. Meaning, ingredients that can jive, click and dance together for the customary Thai spiciness and sourness (Seafood Tom Yum Soup, Tom Yam Chicken, Tom Yam Fried Mee Hoon & Thai Green Fish Curry). As per your taste, let me remind you again, and also as per the ingredients you have at home. 

2 rolls of yee mee noodles or any other type of noodles - blanch to soften.
10 prawns - de-vein and leave the tail on
1 (about 30g) squid - slice into rings
1 cup cabbage - shredded
6 garlic - chopped
Spring onion for garnishing  - shredded
Pickled green chillies (as needed or optional)
2 eggs - fried/scrambled
3 tbsp of oil
Brown sugar and salt for taste

1 1/2 tbsp Thai chilli sauce
1 tbsp tomato sauce
1 tsp fish sauce
1/2 tbsp soy sauce
1/4 cup water

When oil is heated, fry garlic, prawns and squid.
Once prawns and squids are cooked. add all the sauces, salt, sugar and pour in water.
Simmer to heat through.
Place noodles on a serving plate with cabbage and fried egg.
Pour sauce over and garnish with spring onion and pickled green chillies.
Serve immediately.
