Egg Noodles Ingredients
- Hakka Noodles : Hakka Noodles is available in super markets, grocery stores and online. Cook them parboiled (half cooked) or al-dente (cooking firm till you feel them as bite with tooth) so that they do not end up overcooked when sauteed with veggies. Get them 3 or 4 packs so that family enjoys heartily or becomes handy on busy days. You can even use wheat hakka noodles available in supermarkets.
- Eggs & Veggies : White / Brown / Country eggs -any type of egg is perfect for Egg Noodles. I have used veggies -cabbage, capsicum & carrots. Cauliflower, broccoli, mushrooms are other veggies suggestion.
- Sauce : I used Soy sauce & Chilli Sauce available in grocery outlets. You can add chilli oil as an alternative to chilli sauce & other sauces, vinegar based on your taste preferences. For Schezwan version, I have used Schezwan sauce and have tried with Schezwan Chutney as well.
- Oil : Hakka Noodles tastes best with Olive oil. However it is not a compromise if you use refined oil or sesame oil.
