Cooking this Hakka Noodles is very easy, you just have to know how much to boil the noodles. If the noodles are over cooked then u won't be getting the perfectly cooked hakka noodles. So make sure you follow the instruction on the pack or you just boil the noodles for 2 to 3 minutes because you will be cooking the noodles again. I can say that this was the best noodles i have cooked so far. On the day when i cooked this noodles, i shared it with my friends in the apartment. They liked it so much that on the next day one of my friend called me to show her how to cook hakka noodles. For her kids, this has become the favorite food, they just want noodles on every weekends... If we can make a kids happy by our cooking then it means we have succeed in our goal.
