Notes:

  • Do not over cook noodles. Just cook for 3 to 4 mins and immediately show them in cold running water.
  • You may increase or decrease quantity of chilli garlic sauce as per your spice level.
  • No need to cook vegetables completely. Half or 3/4 cooked vegetable tastes good for hakka style noodles.
