    UmmBinat's Note:

    With gluten free option. A very quick to prepare tasty meze. We enjoy this as a delicious breakfast item or it could always be a snack! I serve it with pita bread but a crusty bread would be very good. Modified from The Complete Middle East Cookbook by Tess Mallos, Cyprus section.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4

    Yield:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 8 ounces haloumy cheese (or 250g called "haloom" in Arabic)
    • flour, for coating (To be gluten free I use a mix of white rice flour and half the amount of tapioca starch)
    • olive oil (best to use unrefined)
    • 1 lemon, cut in wedges
    • crusty bread (or pita bread or to be gluten free, rice crackers)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cut cheese into 1/4 inch slices, dip in water and dredge in flour if desired (I do like it this way).
    2. 2
      Heat enough oil in a small frying pan to cover base, fry cheese until slightly golden on each side.
    3. 3
      Squeeze some lemon on top and serve with rest of the lemon wedges and a crusty bread or some pita to dip into the lemon flavoured oil.

      I added some pepper to flour and I baked this with little oil on the barbecue.
      With some fresh tapenade (Simple Olive Tapenade by Katzen) and homemade bread we had a delicious complete meal.
      It was something like "bringing the summer back on our table" .
      Thanks for the idea¨!
