Halloumi Fries

To be blunt if you’ve never tried them you’re missing out and if you’ve never made them yourself you should, because they’re so simple and amazing.

All you need is:


  • A block of halloumi
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 2 tsp of harissa or paprika
  • Vegetable oil
  • Greek or plain yogurt to serve

They need about 5 minutes to cook and must be served hot.


  • Cut the halloumi into sticks.
  • Mix the flour and spices
  • Add the halloumi and coat in flour
  • Add enough oil to cover the base of a frying pan, about 1cm deep and heat.
  • Add a small piece of halloumi to check it’s hot enough. It should bubble and cackle when it hits the oil.
  • Then cook the halloumi in batches, so there’s a single layer in the pan
  • They need about 2 mins on each side, turn when golden.
  • Once cooked remove and place on kitchen towel to drain
  • Serve and fight for the best ones
