  • 50 g plain flour (~ 1/4 cup)
  • 75 ml beer (~ 1/3 cup)
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • Oil for frying
  • 225 g halloumi cheese (8 x 1cm slices)


  • Add the flour and beer to a large bowl, and season generously. Whisk until smooth.
  • Heat a couple of centimetres of oil in a deep pan. When it’s at the point that it sizzles when you drip a tiny amount of batter into the oil, it’s ready to use.
  • Dip the halloumi slices into the beer batter until thoroughly coated, and carefully drop each piece into the oil. Cook for a few minutes each side, until golden brown. Transfer to a plate lined with kitchen paper for a minute or two to drain off any excess oil, then serve, with more salt and pepper if desired.
