Prawn Hakka Noodle Recipe With Step By Step Photos And Videos


Prawn Hakka noodles are the spicy and juicy Indochinese dish made with prawns, vegetables and noodles. This quick , easy and tasty stir fried noodles is usually doesn't need any accompaniment to eat. This fast food dish needs only less than fifteen minutes to assemble. If all the preparations are done, then will be ready within five to seven minutes.  Really a delectable dish with the aroma and benefits of prawns and vegetables.

Hakka noodles are readily available in the markets. Both egg and veg noodles are available. For this recipe I used egg Hakka noodles as this gives better taste and aroma than the veg version. But if there is no other option, then try with veg Hakka noodles.

Before going to the recipe section, I would like to specify a few points.

Always try to choose small prawns for this recipe so that we get prawn in each bite. I tried with large tiger prawns a few months before. Of course, it was gorgeous. I took a few pictures that time. But when the taste is matter, I love to have the same with smaller prawns. 


Clean prawns neatly, devein them and cook properly. Add all  other ingredients only after the prawn is cooked well. Otherwise, you may get stomach upset. This is important if you are serving for kids.


The noodles should not be over cooked. The cooked noodles should be drained completely, washed in fresh water and tossed in oil. You can use olive oil or sunflower oil. Do this step, immediately after the noodles turn al dente.

So let us go to the recipe. A non-veg lover will definitely love this dish. Try at home and enjoy. Step by step photos and video is also given. I explained in my native language, but you can follow my videos easily as ingredients and other steps were explained neatly so that you can understand clearly.
