Chinese Hakka Noodles

This lady has turned everyone into an express train! Ever since she announced her express cooking event, I've been running about my tasks everyday!!! And she is not satisfied. I sent her this and this and she asks, "But where is the meal?" Can't refuse her, can I?

Express cooking idea # 1 Chinese Hakka Noodles
Bring a large pot of water to boil and add the noodles to it. Cook till soft, drain. In a large wok, stir fry a tbsp of white part of spring/green onions till soft. Throw in a tsp of chopped ginger and a tbsp of finely chopped garlic and fry. Now throw in some carrots, peas, French beans/ bean sprouts, cabbage, bell peppers chopped/sliced and sauté till tender. If you parboil the veggies first and then sauté them, cooking time is reduced. Add the noodles, some soy sauce, red chilli sauce, vinegar, white pepper and toss. Add salt only if required as the soy sauce already has a lot of salt. Serve warm.

Hi Jyothsna, I just stumbled upon your blog. Indo-Chinese is my fav too! I wanted to know what brand of noodles you buy. I bought some random brand at the Chinese store and they all stick together when I boil them :(

Hi Aarthi, welcome to Currybazaar! I don't buy any particular brand of noodles, just whatever I find. To avaoid sticky noodles, you can add a tsp of oil while boiling them and once cooked, drain the noodles and rinse them in cold water. Hope that helps :)
