The Hakka people have a marked cuisine and style of Chinese cooking which is little known outside the Hakka home. It concentrates on the texture of food – the hallmark of Hakka cuisine. In fact, the raw materials for Hakka food are no different from raw materials for any other type of regional Chinese cuisine: what you cook depends on what is available in the market. Hakka cuisine may be described as outwardly simple but tasty.
In India and other regions with significant Indian populations, the locally known "Hakka cuisine" is actually an Indian adaptation of original Hakka dishes. This variation of Hakka cuisine is in reality, mostly Indian Taiwanese cuisine. It is called "Hakka cuisine" because in India, many owners of restaurants who serve this cuisine are of Hakka origin.
I am not a fan of noodles, but sometimes I can have it for a change. When I have it I used to order vegetable Hakka noodles, they are simply delicious and love to have them. The tangy, sweet and spicy flavor of these noodles with loads of vegetables makes this dish so inviting. That crunchy flavor of vegetables and noodles coated with sauces are so so tempting. its easy to make and anyone can enjoy it in a dinner or anytime when you are craving to have something in Indochinese dishes.
