This is how it will look, provided you haven't gotten distracted & burned anything. I've never done that, but my "friend" did it before. What a disaster.

Add garlic & curry powder. Keep an eye on this part - you want to keep the veggies moving in that pan for 4-5 minutes. The curry scent  will really start to bloom.  And garlic - ah, yum.

Ok, please, for the LOVE - don't be a tool like me. Buy the shrimp that already have the tails & shells off. THIS is a photo of about an extra 20 mins of TOTALLY UNNECESSARY PREP TIME. //end rant.

THESE are beautiful, naked shrimp. This is what they should look like coming out of the package. This. (You taking notes?) Nestle them down into the rice, cover, cook until shrimp are nice & opaque.

Place the big leaves on the bottom, smaller ones on top. Roll them up, then slice thinly. Result? Long, curly, pretty strands of basil. Gently fold in basil when the shrimp are done cooking.

Sea salt & fresh pepper to taste.  So yummy & comforting, and man do I love shrimp. Even when I have to work twice as hard for them. :)
