What happens if you air fry halloumi?
Halloumi has a firm texture as I have mentioned, so over-frying it is a little hard but accessible. However, try to fry the halloumi for 10 minutes, if you haven’t obtained a nice color, easily fry it for some 5 minutes more. The trick here I use is: cutting the cheese in more halves to easily and quickly fry it. This is why it only takes me some 10 minutes to obtain that nice-looking, delicious, fried halloumi cheese.
