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.

How to make Veg Hakka Noodles

  • 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
