Shezwan Hakka Noodles


Today’s recipe is simple and easy once Shezwan Noodles. I usually feel guilty to pack noodles or pasta for lunch but kids always love these for lunch. Even my little one asks mac and cheese for lunch box. I love the taste of hakka noodles, now days I am not using spaghetti.

Ingredients:


Hakka Noodles
1 pack
Carrot (chopped lengthwise)
½ cup
Cabbage (chopped length wise)
¾ cup
Bell pepper (any color)
¼ cup
French cut beans
¼ cup
Onion
¾ cup
Tomato paste
1 ½ Tbsp
Szehwan sauce
2 Tbsp
Soy sauce
1 tsp
Spring onion
¼ cup
Salt
 
Oil
 
 
 

 

Directions:


  1. Cook hakka noodles by following package instructions.
  2. Heat oil in a fry pan, add onion and sauté for 1 minute, next add all vegetables except cabbage and spring onion. Saute them for few minutes, now add cabbage enough salt for vegetables.
  3. Cook all the vegetables until soft. In this stage add tomato paste, mix well wait for a minute. Next add shezwan sauce and soy sauce mix well. 
  4. Next add cooked noodles and spring onion stir until its mixed well. Turn of the stove. Serve with tomato ketchup.

How to make Shezwan sauce:

In a pan heat 2 tablespoon of oil, add 1 tablespoon chopped garlic, sauté it for few minutes. Next add 2 tablespoon chili pastes (soak red chili in water and grind to paste by removing seeds), cook until raw smell leaves. Add ½ tsp soy sauce, 1 tsp vinegar, 1 tsp tomato ketchup mix well and sauté for another minute. Next add salt, ¼ cup water and 1 tsp brown sugar mix well and cook for a minute turn of the stove. Sauce is ready to use now.


Notes:
  • Adding vegetables is your choice you can increase or decrease the quantity; I use to add more in that way kids get more veges. You can use different noodles too.
  • If you need spicier add more chili paste, while preparing shezwan sauce.
  • You can add garam masala while adding shezwan sauce to noodles its optional I use to add some time. This gives Indian touch.
  • Instead of tomato paste you can add tomato pure when adding tomato paste it give nice color.
