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
cup Rice vinegar
cup Sugar (Brown is preferable)
piece Halloumi cheese
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.
