Forget regular fries. Forget sweet potato fries. Forget them all, just not these ones! I went to Halloumi and tried their famous Halloumi Fries…they were DIVINE, so divine I’ve decided to make my own, so why not share it with you too.
I get some people don’t like Halloumi and I don’t blame you, I wasn’t too keen on it either but to start off with but I love it now. Try this and you’ll really love them. It’s not squeaky or chewy, it’s soft with a crispy, thin batter – what’s not to love?
What is Halloumi?
Halloumi is a cheese traditionally prepared from sheep’s milk in the Greek island of Cyprus and is a soft curd-like cheese free of rennet. It can also be made with goat’s or cow’s milk. Some describe it as a ‘squeaky cheese’
- Plain Flour (90g)
- Smoked paprika (2 tsp – optional)
- Halloumi (2x 225g packs)
- Sunflower oil – for frying
- Coriander (optional)
- Pomegranates (100g – optional)
- Fat-free natural yogurt (100g – optional)
- Cut the Halloumi into chips
- In a bowl, mix the flour and paprika together and lightly coat the Halloumi.
- Add oil to a wide, deep, heavy-based pan so it fills around 1 1/2cm of the pan and heat until sizzling.
- Place a few pieces of Halloumi in at a time ensuring the oil is covering half of the Halloumi chips and fry for 1-2 mins, turning with tongs continusly until golden and crispy all over.
- Transfer to a piece of kitchen roll and repeat with the remaining Halloumi.
- Serve with Houmous and a slice of Lemon or dip (see below)
- Place your chips in a bowl or plate of your choice
- Take any amount of fat-free, natural yoghurt (it’s really up to you how much you want on) and spread on top in a zig-zag-like motion.
- Sprinkle Pomegranates on top
- Take your Yoghurt and place in bowl
- Prepare and chop your coriander
- Mix together
- Put in serving bowl and serve.
OR just use Houmous.
