Spiced Burns fries with honey and herb yogurt dip

Similar to a great halloumi, Burns is a creamy, salty cheese with a satisfying squeak!

Halloumi fries

1) Whisk the flour, cumin, turmeric and paprika in a bowl with a little salt and pepper.

2) Dip each of the Burns chips into the flour mix to coat all the sides and place on a plate.

3) Heat the oil in a shallow heavy bottomed pan to 180C ( or when dropped in, a small cube of bread instantly sizzles) .

4) In batches, fry the ‘chips’ for a couple of minutes until they go golden brown, carefully turning if necessary. Drain on kitchen paper and serve instantly with the dip.
