Veg Hakka Noodles is one of those Indo Chinese Recipes that is so popular all over the place. Hakka Noodles will always find itself in all buffets and liked by almost everybody. The first time I made this was during my college days and Amma always says I make it well. The one incident that always comes to mind will be the time I made this for Konda. I made without any vegetables and back home, she was saying that I don’t know how to make it, as good as Ammamma. Amma was saying I always make it better than her. What I finally understood was that Konda loves the vegetables with the noodles and that really made me happy as she will get to eat the vegetables.
We end up making this noodles for evening snack as Daddy also likes it a lot. So I decided I will pack noodles for Konda’s lunch and for Daddy’s breakfast. Knowing that my entry for this month’s MEC
is due, I decided to make the noodles in Microwave. To be quite frank, making the hakka noodles on stove top is much more easy and quick. So make sure she doesn’t miss her van, I removed half for making the noodles for Konda, quickly made it on the stove top, then made the rest in microwave for Daddy.
Konda was so happy that she got the noodles for lunch and wanted me to make it again. I know I should be having this as a regular item.
