Vegetable Hakka Noodles

Friday, September 03, 2010
So i was sick of the normal Maggi and stuff so tried this recipe. Has a lot of veggies in it and is very easy to make except for the chopping part and very tasty:). 

You will need :

Hakka noodles - 200 gms 
Carrot - 1 big very thinly sliced
Cabbage - about a cup very finely chopped
Colorful Capsicums - about a cup very thinly sliced
Onion - 1 med thinly sliced
Beans - about 10 chopped
Spring onions - about a cup chopped
Bean sprouts - about 2 handfulls or more if u like them :)
Soy Sauce
Chilli sauce (optional)
Oil ( i tried with olive oil.. it was good )

This is how you do  :

1. Boil water(about 10 cups) with some oil and salt and put in the noodles and cook for 2 min.
2. Drain the water and put the noodles in cool water and keep aside.
3. On a high flame heat oil in a wok(its easy to make in a wok or a pan)
4. Add the onions, cabbage, carrots, beans and toss them or sauté them or stir fry till the veggies become a bit soft but be careful be careful not to burn them.
5. Add the capsicum and again toss.
6 .Now drain water and add the noodles, soy sauce, chilli sauce, salt and    
pepper and toss well for about a minute or two.
7. Add the spring onions and sprouts.Mix well and serve.

You have to be a bit quick and careful so that you don't burn the veggies :)

So here you go 

Trust me, it was really yummy :)

P.S - You can also add scrambled egg to make Egg hakka noodles or can add boiled boneless chicken chunks to make Chicken Hakka Noodles :)
