Hakka is word referred to a community in china and the term Hakka literally means the ‘guest among us’. The people in this community are famous for their hard work and simplicity. They often migrate from one place to another through out the world. Despite of their frequent migration they are famous for keeping their traditions alive. This is where the name was inspired for this very popular Indo-Chinesse dish.

I love Indo-chinese food. Now some of you guys out there wondering what is this Indo-chinese food. Its like chinese food are prepared in such way that suits indian palate. When I first moved to US and decided one day to order some chinese food. And to my surprise I did not find any familiar dishes on the menu like the top most ‘Hakka noodles’, Gobi Manchurian, Chilli Chicken and so on.

I was bit disappointed at that time as these use to be my favorite food and now I will not get any of these here. So, in order to fulfill my craving I have decided to try some of the dishes at home.

The key behind making this dish is you have cook on high heat without burning the vegetables and over cooking them. Also, preferably all the veggies need to be cut in slices about the same size.
