Halloumi Fries

Crispy and salty, these cheese fries make the perfect party food for both adults and children. Serve alongside your favourite dipping sauce.


  • 75g plain flour
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 x 225g packs of halloumi, cut into chips
  • Sunflower oil, for frying
  • 2 tbsp fresh coriander, chopped
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped


  1. Mix the flour and paprika together in a bowl, then add the sliced halloumi in and toss to coat.
  2. Add the oil into a wide, heavy based saucepan until it fills a depth of around 1.5cm. Turn the heat on, and let it warm up until it is sizzling. 
  3. Add in a few pieces of halloumi at a time and fry for 1-2 minutes, occasionally turning with tongs until golden and crispy all over. Transfer to a piece of kitchen paper to absorb any excess oil, and repeat with the remaining halloumi.
  4. Sprinkle the fries with salt, toss to coat, then scatter over the chopped coriander and chilli.
