Gluten free, low cal Veg Hakka Noodles

Indo Chinese is a whole new cuisine in India. Indian Chinese was born when Chinese migrants (mostly from the Hakka region)settled in Kolkata, developed a cuisine to suit the local taste…Simply put together, Indo Chinese is the Indian adaptation of Chinese cooking techniques and seasonings with a unique tadka😉….

Chinese food is the most popular cuisine in India followed by other International cuisines. This is why majority of the Indian restaurants dedicate a section to Indo Chinese food… well not to forget the Chinese food carts in every nook and corner of India…

Being on a diet has made me experiment many of my favorite dishes in a healthier version and veg Hakka noodles was always on my list. I wanted to enjoy these noodles without any guilt of those extra calories,And so this is how my version of gluten free veg Hakka noodles was born…

Shiritaki, a traditional Japanese food, is an ultimate gluten free,low calorie, high in fiber and omega 3 noodle substitute. The best part I loved about these miracle noodles is that they are tasteless so these blend with any flavor that you want… isn’t it awesome.😊

Well as I am not a big fan of eggs in Chinese cuisine and hence I did not add eggs in my noodles, but if you love eggs, can definitely add them as it will increase the protein content of the meal.

I hope you guys enjoy my version of veg Hakka noodles. Would love to know from you all how did it turn out…
