Veg Hakka Noodles

Veg Hakka Noodles Recipe

Vegetarian Hakka Noodles also called a Chow Mein in many parts of India is a very Indian Chinese adaptation of the recipe. The first time I had these was in the Chinese town of Kolkata. I was blown into a fantasyland and after that I have continued to make it just like how they do. The only difference is I have loaded it with lots of vegetables to make it more nutritious.

Cooking time
25 min


    • 150 grams Veg Hakka Noodles 
    • 50 grams small soy nuggets, soaked in warm water for 30 minutes
    • an inch piece ginger, finely chopped
    • 3 carrots, julienned
    • 1 green bell pepper, thinly sliced
    • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
    • 1 -1/2 cups cabbage, thinly sliced
    • 10 to 12 green beans, cut lengthwise
    • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
    • 1/4 cup green onions, chopped
    • 5 to 6  spring onion, stalk and leaves chopped
    • 1 teaspoon black pepper powder
    • salt to taste
    • 1 tablespoon Saffola oil


    Optional Sauces to be added


    • 1 tablespoon of Asian Red chilli sauce 
    • 1 teaspoon of green chilli or white vinegar

How to make Veg Hakka Noodles

    • To begin making the Vegetarian Hakka Noodles recipe, first cook the noodles according the instructions in the package
    • Cool, the noodles immediately by running it under cold water. This stops the cooking process and prevents the noodles from getting too soft and soggy
    • Add a tablespoon of oil to the cooled noodles and keep aside
    • Heat oil in a large frying pan on high heat; add ginger, sliced onions, spring onions, carrots, beans, bell peppers, cabbage, soy nuggets and sauté on high until it has a cooked and crisp texture. Stirring on high heat cooks the vegetables faster and also helps it retain color and a subtle crispness
    • Stir in the cooked noodles, black pepper and the sauces if you plan to add. Stir on high until all the vegetables get blended well with the noodles
    • Serve the Vegetarian Hakka Noodles as a meal of its own or along with Gobi Manchurian
