Ingredients

  • 85g plain flour
  • 1 tbsp za'atar
  • 600ml sunflower oil
  • 500g halloumi

Method

  1. 1

    Combine the flour and za’atar and spread out on a shallow plate. Fill a large high-sided pan with the oil to about 2 inches deep, then heat the oil to 190°C. Meanwhile, cut the halloumi into strips lengthways, approximately 1.5cm in width. Coat in the flour mixture, shaking off any excess.

  2. 2

    Add the halloumi to the hot oil in batches. The temperature will drop when you add the cheese, so adjust where necessary. Fry for 3 minutes until golden, turning over occasionally. Remove and drain on kitchen paper and repeat until all the halloumi has been fried. Set aside and keep warm until ready to serve.
