Air Fried Halloumi Fries Recipe


Air Fried Halloumi Fries recipe, Mandy Charlton, photographer, writer, blogger, food


If you're anything like me you'll know just how amazing Halloumi Fries are, they may not be so healthy you can eat them every day but it's January, it's dark and we need some home comforts whilst still trying to be a little bit healthier.  This Halloumi fries recipe is different because it's all done in an air fryer, it uses 1 cal oil and it's perfect for our vegetarian friends, in fact, I can confirm it because I tested the recipe just this week on 2 ladies who aren't veggie and one who most definitely is.  These air fried Halloumi fries may just change your life and they only take 15 minutes to cook plus a couple of minutes of preparation.


What you'll need


  • 2 tablespoons of the flour of your choice, I used plain flour but you could use spelt or even Polenta which would definitely give that crisp outside.
  • Large Pinch of Salt
  • Large Pinch of Paprika
  • Large Pinch of Black Pepper
  • 1 Cal cooking oil spray - (I used Frylight coconut but I use that for everything)
  • 1 block of Halloumi sliced into 8 chubby finger-sized portions
  • Dip of your choice to serve 

Method

  • Combine the flour, paprika, salt and pepper on a plate with a fork
  • coat each of the Halloumi fingers in the dry mixture
  • Switch your air fryer to 200c
  • spray the basket with oil making sure it's coated all over so that the fries don't stick to the basket
  • put the coated Halloumi fingers into the air fryer and program it for 15 minutes
  • around halfway through turn the fries to make sure they're evenly browned on all sides
  • After 15 minutes your Halloumi Fries will be ready but they will also be hot so plate up with tongs
  • accompany with a handful of peppers, a green salad and add dips of your choice to the side, I love tomato and honey or sweet chilli
1 portion should quite easily feed 2 as a starter or 1 as a main course.



If you don't have an air fryer yet, they're so much cheaper than they used to be and they're incredibly versatile, especially if like me, you're often cooking in single portions, I've had a quick look on Amazon and this Tower air fryer is currently just over £30, it's not quite the same as mine but looks around the same size.

I've made a few different batches of these Halloumi fries and I definitely think that thicker works better than thinner when you're air frying and I also think you don't want to cram the basket too full of they're just going to stick, whatever you do though and however you cook them, I'd love to hear from them if you try the recipe.
