Crispy Halloumi Fries (and dips!)
Recipe by Helen Schofield from Scrummy Lane
For the ‘fries’
- 9 ounces halloumi cheese (this is usually 1 'log' but exact weight doesn't matter)
- 1 tablespoon flour
- vegetable oil for frying (enough to fill a medium saucepan to a depth of about half an inch)
For the dip
- sour cream or Greek yogurt (I prefer Greek yogurt, and also sweet chili sauce)
Cut the halloumi cheese into roughly equal sized ‘fries’ (mine were about 1.5cm in thickness).
Roll the ‘fries’ in the flour.
Heat up the oil in a medium saucepan until the end of the ‘fry’ dipped into it sizzles. Then, carefully lower the fries into the oil. Fry for a couple of minutes on each side or until golden and crunchy-looking (you might have to do this in 2 or more batches).
Remove carefully from the oil with a fork and serve immediately with the sour cream and sweet chili sauce.
