I was so engrossed with some work that I lost track of time. At one point, when I looked up at the clock I realised that it was almost lunch time and I haven’t made anything. After a quick look at my pantry, I decided on making Hakka Noodles. Hakka noodles is a simple stir fried noodles. It is more of an Indo-Chinese recipe. Indian Chinese cuisine is the adaptation of Chinese seasoning and cooking techniques to Indian tastes. It is said to have been developed by the small Chinese community that has lived in Kolkata for over a century (Courtesy: Wikipedia)

I have used chicken in this recipe. However, vegetarians can omit that and prepare the vegetarian version.

    Is there any substitute to MSG?? Wondering if my dish will taste just as good without… Anyway thanks..

    Oh by the way do you work somewhere or are you a stay at home mom??

  10. Mareena Jerrish says:

    Hi JJ,

    I am not aware of any substitute to MSG. Its perfectly fine if U don’t add MSG. You can add a bit of chicken stock/ veg stock also to enhance the flavour. Hope this helps.
    As for your question about me.. I work from home. 🙂 take care!!!
