Author Notes: I ordered something similar in a restaurant once, but found it a bit rich as the cheese had been coated with batter, so I decided to try to make a version that was finger licking good, but not too rich. The Sweet Chili Sauce also cuts the richness. - Nikki Seiler
Sweet Chilli Sauce
- 3 Red Chillies
- 1 cup Rice vinegar
- 1 pinch Salt
- 3/4 cups Sugar (Brown is preferable)
- 1 Garlic clove
- 1 piece Halloumi cheese
- 1 splash Olive oil
- Chop the garlic finely.
- Put the chillies, rice vinegar, salt, sugar and garlic in a small sauce pan over low heat until the sugar dissolves.
- Bring to the boil, then cook for about 5 minutes or until the mixture thickens to a liquidy syrup consistency.
- Remove from the heat and allow to cool
- Cut the Halloumi into strips
- Just before serving, heat the oil in a non stick pan on a high heat.
- Fry the strips of Halloumi in the pan until they are golden on both sides (this is a very quick process).
- Serve the warm cheese with the Sweet Chili Sauce on the side.
