|FOOD|beer battered halloumi and chips

To celebrate our recent wedding anniversary we decided that we wanted a menu which where we could both eat the same thing (I'm vegetarian), I suggested the idea of battered halloumi, we wanted a menu which was delicious, quick and easy and that we could cook together, this recipe fitted the bill exactly!

Serves 2 - we only had 2 each as we had eaten at lunch with T too!

1 pack Halloumi cheese
1/2 cup self raising flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup beer
1/4 cup milk (we used full fat)
1 bottle vegetable oil


1. cut the halloumi into 3 slices, then cut diagonally to form 6 pieces.
2. Mix all batter ingredients in a bowl and beat until the batter starts to foam.
3. In a large pan, heat the oil, when the oil starts to 'swirl' use a teaspoon to drop a tiny amount of batter in, if it bubbles and starts to cook immediately you are ready to fry!

4. Dip your halloumi in the batter and plunge straight into the oil, cook for about 5 minutes, you'll see when it's ready as you can see the batter change colour and it will rise to the top, drain on kitchen paper. 

There will be some batter leftover.

Serve with homemade chips, a bit of salad and a glass of prosecco!  Oh and your husband ;)

Look out for our quick and easy chocolate fondant recipe coming soon!
