Vegetable Hakka noodles is an all time favorite at my home . The noodles I use are the brand Ching's Hakka noodles available in the groceries. This dish is quite healthy as well as you have good amount of veggies like onions, carrots, beans and bell pepper .I have also learnt over time to not miss adding cabbage and garlic to this recipe as it imparts a unique flavor. I try to make sure to have all these ingredients before hand before making this dish. I also used the Ching's noodle masala available in the stores for flavoring, but it is optional and one can substitute with pepper powder, chili flakes and salt .The full recipe is below 🙂
