In India and other regions with significant Indian populations, the locally known “Hakka cuisine” is actually an Indian adaptation of original Hakka dishes. This variation of Hakka cuisine is in reality, mostly Indian Chinese cuisine.
It is called “Hakka cuisine” because in India many owners of restaurants that serve this cuisine are of Hakka origin. Typical dishes include ‘chilli chicken’ and ‘Manchurian chow mein‘ (an Indianised version of real Manchurian cuisine), and these restaurants also serve traditional Indian dishes such as pakora.
Being very popular in these areas, this style of cuisine is often mistakenly credited of being representative of Hakka cuisine in general, whereas the authentic style of Hakka cuisine is rarely known in these regions.
