A Chinese meal is not complete without noodles, but diabetics are often asked to avoid refined foods like noodles, refined bread and pasta which have a high glycemic index.

I have taken the liberty of adding noodles to this menu along with loads of flavourful vegetables and have tossed it in very little oil.

The trick is to add lots of fibre by way of vegetables so that the dish looks colourful and also suits the diabetic diet.

Vitamin A, vitamin C, iron, protein, calcium and fibre are the nutrients that fortify this recipe.

Hakka noodles are usually made with oodles of oil and less vegetables. Here, I salute you Tarla Ma'am for making it healthy by adding less noodles, using less oil and adding soo many vegetables. And trust me, it's equally tasty...this recipe is also for those people who wish to lose weight!

Lots of vegetables and smaller proportion of noodles. Perfect for eating healthy. Soya sauce adds that nice tinge.
