Soft, delicious cheese is pepped up with spicy paprika to create a fabulous side dish worthy as an accompaniment to any summer's evening meal. Serve alongside burgers, salads or grilled fish.

  1. In a bowl, mix the flour and paprika, then use to lightly coat the halloumi.
  2. Add the oil to a wide, deep, heavy-based pan, so that it fills to a depth of about 1 1/2cm, and heat until sizzling. Add a few pieces of halloumi at a time and fry for 1-2 mins, turning with tongs, until golden and crispy all over. Transfer to a piece of kitchen paper and repeat with the remaining halloumi.
  3. Sprinkle the fries with salt, toss to coat, then divide between paper cones or bowls. Stir the coriander into the yogurt; season. Scatter the chilli over the fries and serve with the yogurt.
