Tofu Hakka Noodles



We really love Chinese food that you get in India. It's hot & spicy, just suited for Indian palette. Last week, I made these Tofu Hakka Noodles, inspired by Indo-Chinese cuisine.

Tofu Hakka Noodles
Ingredients

1 packet whole wheat noodles/whole wheat Angel hair Pasta
1 tbsp oil
1/2 slab of Tofu, cubed
1 tbsp garlic, minced
1 tbsp ginger, minced
3 spring onions, minced
1 carrot, cut into matchsticks
1/2 bell pepper, cut into matchsticks
1/2 onion, sliced
1/2 cup cabbage, shredded
10 - 12 green beans, cut into french style
salt to taste
1 tbsp Light, low sodium Soy Sauce
1 tbsp tomato ketchup


Garnish
Freshly crushed black pepper
Chili sauce
green-chilies & vinegar

Method
1. Cook the noodles according to the packet instructions. Set aside.
2. Heat oil in a wok.
3. Add minced ginger-garlic , onions and vegetables. Saute on a high flame till they are cooked but still crunchy.
4. Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste.
5. Add soy sauce, tomato ketchup and vinegar.
6. Add the noodles & tofu cubes.
7. Mix everything together.
8. Serve hot with chili sauce, green chilies in vinegar & crushed black pepper.

Note -
1. Soy sauce already has salt so add salt sparingly.
2. You can shallow fry or bake tofu cubes before adding to the noodles.
