Notes

  • Preferably use veg Hakka noodles for this recipe. But you can also use spaghetti or ramen noodles here. Cook it al dante following the instructions on the packet. Drizzle oil over the strained noodles and lightly mix it. This prevents the noodles from sticking together.
  • Cook it in sesame oil preferably. Else use any regular cooking oil. Don't shy away from adding lots of garlic. That is what gives it its unique flavor. Fry garlic till it reaches the burning point, but do not burn it. It should become golden brown. For an extra crunch, fry some peanuts along with garlic.
  • Birds eye chilis are very spicy. For maximum heat, slice them whole. For milder heat, cut them lengthwise down the middle and scrape out the seeds and veins. Else, simply use crushed red pepper flakes. You can also use Sriracha or chilly paste instead.
  • This recipe is very flexible when it comes to veggies needed. You can add any vegetables you have, like spring onions, broccoli, shredded carrots, cabbage, snow peas, edamame, etc. You can also make this vegan noodle recipe without any vegetables. It tastes great. To add protein, fry tofu along with the other veggies. This recipe does not call for any sauces but feel free to add soy sauce, coconut aminos or sriracha if you want.
  • After you add the cooked noodles to the wok, you need not cook it for long. Just toss it all together with the veggies and it's done. Adding Chinese salt or Ajinomoto is a personal choice. Else just use regular salt to season it.
  • This vegan stir fry noodles should stay good in the fridge for at least 3 days, although it’s best eaten fresh.
