Hakka Noodles with Veg Manchurian | Indo Chinese Main Course | How to make Hakka Noodles

I read recently that Manchurian is not only one of the favourite
Indo-Chinese items ordered at most Indian restaurants, but also that Manchurian has nothing
to do with authentic Chinese cooking. It was perhaps made popular by street food carts
and Quick Service Restaurants (QSRs) and even those with take away menu cards
serving fast food. Whatever the reason, this dish is very popular and has come to stay in various forms – in both gravy and
dry form – tickling the Indian palate with hot-sour-spicy options like Veg
Manchurian, Gobi Manchurian under veg, and Chicken and Prawn Manchurians in the
non veg stable. 

Today’s meal for Sunday dinner was kiddo’s favourite with Hakka Noodles and
Veg Manchurian which was lapped up with gusto. After yesterday’s Thai Green Curry from South East Asia, this is an Indo Chinese Main Course option…

Off to the recipe as this
travels to BM # 31 under Main Course. The recipe for Low Cal Manchurian is
given here,
and it remains our family’s favourite 🙂

  13. You are right–there are no manchurians served at real authentic Chinese restaurants. They sure are a great invention by a clever Indian chef 🙂
    Everything in those pics looks awesome. Only thing I don't like about Chinese food is all the fine chopping involved and with the baby I only have a few minutes to prep my meals.. I wish someone can make this for me or at least chop the veggies, so I can make it myself 🙁

  14. Perfect combo…..nicely presented

  15. Perfect combo Kalyani. Looks very tempting!
