The halloumi was pan griddled – firstly dipped in beaten egg and then a light dusting of cornflour. Halloumi is VERY calorific (approx 315 calories per 100g), which is why we enjoyed it with these low calorie but filling accompaniments. 415 calories for the 112g of cheese alone, including the cornflour dusting, egg and a teaspoon of avocado oil for frying.
