Guest Post : Veg Hakka Noodles

How to make Veg Hakka Noodles

This recipe is shared by my dahlingg sister Asmita.. We both have similar affection towards food. With this recipe she has brought back so many childhood memories specially the ones around the table. Being elder sista mom always asked me to set right table manners for her and the toughest one was to finish everything that's in your plate. . Just to save her I always used to help her finish things she didn't like and gosh long lasting are the repercussions .. but Never mind that made some bonds stronger forever for sure : )

She is crazily fond of Noodles so here is to the crazy sisterhood ..

Here is what we need -

  • 1 packet of Hakka noodles or a packet of thick Sphagetti.
  • 1 big onion
  • Bunch of spring onion
  • 1 bowl chopped ( length wise) cabbage
  • Half bowl chopped carrot
  • Half bowl chopped mushrooms
  • Half bowl green bell pepper ( optional )
  • Ginger and garlic finely chopped
  • 1/2 spoon chili powder
  • Oil
  • Sauces: Tomato ketchup
  • Soya sauce
  • Hot sauce ( chili )
  • schezwan sauce ( optional )
  • Chinese salt: Ajinomoto (optional) can be replaced with our normal salt.

Whats Next -

1 st Step: take around 4 cups of water in heavy bottom pan. Bring water to boil. Then add raw Hakka noodles to it. In 8 -10 minutes noodles will become tender and soft. Make sure noodles shouldn’t be
overcooked. Pour these cooked noodles in porous pan and hold it under cold tap water. Once water is removed keep it aside.

2 nd step: Take heavy bottom pan or kadhai. Put it on medium heat add 4 table spoons of oil. This recipe needs excess oil. Then add chopped garlic and ginger. Then 1 by 1 add vegetables a in a sequence.. Add
onion first stir it well till it becomes slightly yellow then add carrot, cabbage, capsicum, mushrooms. Stir it well.. Once vegetables are half cooked; add soya sauce, tomato ketchup, chili sauce and schezwan sauce in it.. Add chili powder as per your taste. Adjust salt. In this way make a spicy mixture of vegetables and sauces is ready

3 rd step: Add cooked Hakka noodles to it. You need to stir it well so the noodles get mixed properly with the spicy mixture. Add sauces if required. Add a little bit of water if needed to prevent it from
becoming dry. Stir it well for around 10-15 minutes.

Your Hakka noodles are ready to serve. You can serve this dish with any kind of Chinese soup. I prefer vegetable man chow soup with it.
