Hakka Noodles

             Chinese cuisine is very famous in India, and is probably the most ubiquitous international cuisine in India. But the Chinese food available in most restaurants in India is almost indistinguishable from authentic Chinese cuisine. Chinese cuisine in India was made famous by the Chinatown in Kolkata who adapted their Chinese recipes to cater to local tastes, which then became more Indian and more un-Chinese as they spread across India.

Hakka Noodles is a famous Chinese dish often served in restaurants in India. Here is my take on this dish. Hope you like it.

  • 1 packet Hakka Noodles
  • 1 cup finely shredded Cabbage
  • 1 cup finely sliced Onions
  • 1 cup finely sliced Bell Peppers
  • 2-4 finely chopped Green Chillies ( Can be adjusted as per the desired spiciness)
  • 1 tsp Vinegar
  • 2 tsp Soya Sauce
  • Salt as per taste
  • Black Pepper as per taste
  • Oil
  • Boil the noodles in about 4 cups of water with about 1 tsp oil. The oil prevents the noodles from sticking together.
  • Drain the water from the noodles, and pour some cold water on it. Again, I usually do this to prevent them from sticking.
  • Now, take a wok or a pan and heat some oil on a high flame.

  • Add the green chillies and onions and saute them for 2 minutes
  • Then add the bell peppers and the cabbage and saute them for another 2-3 minutes
  • Add the salt and pepper to it and mix it well

  • Then, add the boiled noodles, soya sauce and mix well
  • Let it cook for 2-3 more minutes, and take it off the heat 

  • Then add the vinegar and spring onions for garnish
  • Serve hot with some chinese gravy with Manchurian or Paneer Chili
  • We can use colored bell peppers as well
  • The more vegetables it has, the more healthy it becomes
