Halloumi Fries

Halloumi Fries

Deep fried halloumi chips smothered in herb yoghurt, lemon and honey.

  • In a bowl, finely chop a handful of Umthunzi herbs, add a generous amount of yoghurt, a splash of vinegar and season well with salt and pepper.
  • Cut your halloumi into baton/fries shape. Pat dry with a paper towel.
  • Then, pour enough oil to fully cover the halloumi in a pan over a high heat. When the oil is hot, fry the halloumi fries until golden and crispy. Rest on a paper towel.
  • Place the fries into a bowl and squeeze over a little honey and lemon juice. Finally drizzle over the herb yoghurt and dig in!


Once halloumi is fried it tends to go slightly rubbery if it's left out too long. So, don't wait around to enjoy your fries – dig in (once cool enough to eat).
