Hakka Noodles

Hakka noodles is one of the most popular dish in Chinese restaurants in India. Here is an indianised version of Hakka Noodles.


Let's collect Ingredients:

1 pack Hakka noodles
4-5 garlic, finely chopped
2 Red chillies, broken in the pieces
1 cup cabbage, thinly diced
1 carrot, thinly sliced
2 spring onion with green part,chopped finely
1 small green bell pepper, thinly sliced
2 tsp soya sauce
2 tsp red chili sauce
2 tbsp Brown Vinegar
2 tsp sweet & spicy sauce
1/2 tsp chinese salt / Ajinomoto (optional)
3 tsp oil
salt to taste

Let's prepare Hakka Noodles :

1. Boil water and add 1 tablespoon oil and salt. Add the noodles, allow the water to come to a boil, and then simmer till the noodles are cooked.

2. Remove from the fire and drain out all the water. Pour some cold water on the noodles to stop further cooking.

3. Let all the water drain out and ensure that the noodles do not contain any moisture. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil and mix lightly. This will prevent the noodles from sticking together.

4. Heat a pan or wok to high. Add garlic and red chili. Stir-fry.


5. Add onion, white part of spring onion, cabbage, bell pepper and carrots. Stir for 1-2 min.

6. Add the sauces, vinegar, Ajinomoto and salt. Mix well.

5. Add noodles, mix it well and cook for a min.Garnish with green parts of spring onion. Serve hot.


Tips:
Chinese salt/ Ajinomoto gives the typical chinese taste but it is optioal, can be skipped.
Amount of sauces and vegetables can vary as per taste.

Hey... beautiful color of the noodles!
@ kadak muthiya, in undhiyu, we add methi na gota or methi pakodas. I guess these would be too firm to be able to absorb the flavor.
