Vegetable Hakka Noodles in Chili Lemon Sauce

There are several ingredients you can add to your noodles. It all depends on the taste that you are looking for at that point of time. For now, chili lemon sauce sounded good in my head,  so I thought of giving it a try. It turned out great. The recipe was flavorsome and nutritious too because of all the vegetables I added to my noodles. Although, this time I used store-bought red chili sauce. You can also make chili sauce at home. Here is the link to one of my chili sauce recipes – Cayenne Pepper Garlic Chutney. Lemon juice gives the recipe a fresh taste in place of adding vinegar. Once again I would say the same thing I do for mostly all my recipes – feel free to add your favorite vegetables and you will definitely end up creating a new recipe which you’ll be proud of. 🙂

Hakka Noodles

The whole cooking process has to go very quickly. It tastes better if you leave your vegetables crunchy. It gives texture and body to your noodles. Moreover, they will taste better too. 🙂

    • Thank you! 🙂 Hakka Noodles basically comes under Indo-Chinese cuisine brought by Hakka Chinese to India. Hence, they slightly have an Indian touch in terms of flavors. Hope I’ve cleared your doubt. 🙂
