Servings 12 fingers


  • 300 gm Halloumi cheese
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds coarsely crushed
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli flakes
  • Oil for frying


  • Cut the Halloumi into 12 thick fingers. They will be slightly damp.
  • Mix together the flour and spices in a shallow bowl. You don’t need to add salt as the cheese is salted. Toss the fingers in the flour making sure they’re well coated.
  • Pour enough oil to cover the base of a largish frying pan. Heat the oil, over medium heat, to cover the base of a largish frying pan over a medium-high heat. Working in 2 or 3 batches, fry the floured halloumi fingers till golden brown and crisp. Remove and drain on kitchen paper.
  • Serve warm with dipping sauce.
