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

Serves: 4

Sweet Chilli Sauce

  • 3 Red Chillies
  • 1 cup Rice vinegar
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 3/4 cup Sugar (Brown is preferable)
  • 1 Garlic clove

Halloumi Cheese

  • 1 piece Halloumi cheese
  • 1 splash Olive oil
  1. Chop the garlic finely.
  2. Put the chillies, rice vinegar, salt, sugar and garlic in a small sauce pan over low heat until the sugar dissolves.
  3. Bring to the boil, then cook for about 5 minutes or until the mixture thickens to a liquidy syrup consistency.
  4. Remove from the heat and allow to cool
  5. Cut the Halloumi into strips
  6. Just before serving, heat the oil in a non stick pan on a high heat.
  7. Fry the strips of Halloumi in the pan until they are golden on both sides (this is a very quick process).
  8. Serve the warm cheese with the Sweet Chili Sauce on the side.
