Veg Noodles (simple & easy)

Preparation time : 10-15 minutes

Ingredients :

  • Vegetables : Potato, Cauliflower, Spring onions, Tomato, Onion, Garlic, Ginger, Green Chillies, Fresh Coriander leaves (you can also use carrots and beans)
  • Hakka Noodles packet ( I used the Wai Wai Hakka Veg Noodles )
  • Spices : 1 pinch chilli powder, small pinch of jeera powder, 1 pinch black pepper, salt. I also used a very small pinch of haldi powder, but this is optional. You can also use the ready to use Hakka Noodles masala packet / authentic Chinese spices also. But I wanted to keep it really simple.
  • Refined oil ( I used Emami Healthy and Tasty Sunflower oil ).
  • Sauce : I used Delmonte Schezwan Sauce. You may use any tomato sauce / hot garlic sauce/ chilli sauce depending on your taste.

Recipe :

  1. Start boiling the Hakka noodles in a saucepan. Add a pinch of salt and few drops of refined oil in the pan while you are boiling the noodles.
  2. When the noodles are completely boiled remove them from oven. Add 1 small cup of cold water into the pan. Keep it aside for few minutes.
  3. Drain water from the noodles and keep them in a plate.
  4. Take a wok. Add approx 4 tbsp of refined oil ( amount of oil depends on quantity of veggies). Let it become hot.
  5. Now add the Cauliflowers and Potatoes first in the wok. Stir fry for 2-3 minutes.
  6. Then add spring onions, finely chopped onions, finely chopped ginger and garlic. Keep stirring for 1-2 minutes. Add the roughly chopped tomatoes now.
  7. When the tomatoes becomes soft, add all the spices (except black pepper) and salt. Mix well with the vegetables.
  8. Keep stirring until the vegetables become soft (never deep fry them). Now add the noodles in the wok and keep mixing everything well.
  9. When completely done, add finely chopped green chillies and finely chopped coriander leaves. Mix well.
  10. When plating add any sauce of your choice (I used Schezwan Sauce) and mix well.

Enjoy your tasty easy Veg Hakka noodles ๐Ÿ˜€

MuMi’s Tips and Tricks ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Adding cold water to the boiled noodles helps you if the noodles are breaking / overboiled.
  • Adding slight pinch of haldi powder gives a beautiful light yellow color to the noodles (personal choice, totally optional)
  • Cut the potatoes as thin as you can. Potatoes are not used in noodles usually. But if you are a potato lover like me ๐Ÿ˜€ you can add them, but make sure you cut it very thin so that it completely gets mixed with other vegetables.
  • I have cut the spring onions in long thin parts instead of the traditional fine chop. This is because I have used them as a vegetable and not garnishing. Again a personal choice, you can skip coriander leaves and use finely chopped spring onions.
  • If you are not using onion and garlic in the noodles then the spring onion can add its own flavor if you cut it long and use it as vegetable.
  • I skipped adding soya sauce because I dont like it.. you may if you want. But if you use Schezwan sauce like me, dont use any other sauce.
