After seeing deep fried halloumi on TV this week, I wondered whether it could be airfried. Good news, it can!

You will need

  • A block of halloumi cut into chunky chips. I got 8 out of a large slab
  • A heaped teaspoon of smoked paprika
  • A heaped teaspoon of onion powder
  • A heaped teaspoon of ground black pepper
  • 4 heaped teaspoons of plain flour
  • An egg, whisked

Do

  • Stick the airfrier to 200oC
  • Mix all the dry ingrediants on a plate
  • Dip the halloumi in the egg and then flour mix
  • If you can get away with it, double dip in egg and flour again
  • Airfry for about ten minutes until the outside is crisp
  • Serve with a salad, something with a bit of acid to it

Result

Crispy, salty, chewy and satifying. The ouside was a touch powdery because they’ve relied on the fat leaching out of the cheese, not been deepfried. Next time I’m going to tumble them in a hot sweet sauce before serving.
