  • About 4oz whole wheat noodles
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 2 cups cabbage thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup carrots grated or thinly sliced
  • 1 cup bell pepper thinly sliced, use the different color bell pepper, capsic
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped French green beans
  • 1 tablespoon ginger finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons chili sauce, adjust to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • Cook noodles according to the package instructions. Drain the cooked noodles in a colander, and rinse them with cold water. Set aside.
  • Heat oil in a wide pan or wok on medium high heat, first sauté the green beans, and ginger for about 1 minutes.
  • Traditionally vegetables are tossed while cooking, I find it is easier just to stir fry
  • Add grated carrots, shredded cabbage and sliced bell pepper. Stir fry for about two minutes, do not overcook the vegetables. Vegetables should have some crunch.
  • Add noodles, salt, soy sauce, vinegar, and chili sauce, toss them together and stir-fry them for about a minute.
  • Hakka noodles are ready.

    1. Sneha, sorry for delay replying, I am using SAMBAL OELEK I use this in making many different dishes same brand has another one that is labeled very clearly Garlic Chili Sauce. If your grocery store do not carry, you can also buy from amazon

  1. Hi Manjulaji, I have really learnt how to cook my favourite recipes from you.Most importantly,since u do not use onion and garlic, I can enjoy them all days of the week as I am strictly veg on Thursdays and Fridays.Thanks a lot

    1. Hello manju ji I was diagnosed with colitis last month and recovering slowly. Please suggest what can I use to replace chili pepper to get similar flavor as I cannot eat note gives burning sensation thanks

    1. Yogita, chili sauce is available without onion garlic I use sambal oelek brand but this is easy to make in my next recipe with chili sauce I will also make the chili sauce. I stir-fry the dried red chili in oil after it cools off I blend roasted chili, salt,and vinegar to make sauce, works good.
