Pro Tips by Neha
Boil the Noodles until they are just done otherwise they will turn mushy while stir-frying.
Chop or shred the vegetables in the same size. It will be easy to cook them with the same texture and they will look good too.
Adjust the sauces according to your taste.
You can add more chillies if you like your noodles hot.
Serve these noodles along with a hot sauce.
You can boil the noodles in advance and add some oil to them and mix gently. This will keep them from sticking to each other.
How to boil the chicken?
Heat 3-4 cups of water in a pan.
When it comes to a boil, add boneless chicken pieces. Cover the pan and cook on medium heat until chicken is cooked through.
It will take 10-12 minutes for the chicken to cook properly.
Take out the chicken from the pan and let it cool. Reserve the broth and use it in soups or stews.
Once the chicken is cooled, shred it using a fork
Tools to make it
Not rocket science, trust me!
Start by heating sesame oil in a wok, and then gently add chopped garlic, add spring onions, celery, capsicum, carrot, cabbage, baby corn if you like and stir fry it well.
Later, add an egg in the same wok, let it scramble and then add soya sauce, add the chicken, other sauces and boiled noodles. Give it a nice toss.
Lastly, garnish Chicken Hakka Noodles with some chopped spring onion greens and piping hot & sizzling Noodles are all set to be relished!
While this noodle dish is surely a one toss sizzling meal, it tastes uber scrumptious when served with other Chinese dishes like Chinese Sweet and Sour Vegetables et al.
Also, serve it with a hot sauce and you are good to go.
