Creamy Halloumi.jpg


  • 225g block halloumi
  • 2 tbsp flavourless oil (such as vegetable or sunflower oil)
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • thumb-sized piece of ginger, grated
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 400g can chopped tomatoes
  • 100ml double cream
  • 80g fresh or frozen baby spinach
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp garam masala
  • 1 tsp nigella seeds
  • cooked rice, grains or naan, to serve


  • STEP 1
    Begin by cutting the halloumi into small, bite-sized cubes, and set them aside. Then, in a large pan over medium heat, heat 1 tablespoon of oil. Add the onion and cook for approximately 5 minutes until it becomes translucent.
  • STEP 2
    Next, add the garlic and ginger to the pan. Cook for an additional 2 minutes, stirring frequently until they release their aroma. Incorporate the cumin, coriander, and turmeric, and cook for another 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes and mix well. Allow it to simmer for 5-7 minutes until the mixture thickens.
  • STEP 3
    Lower the heat and pour in the cream. Stir gently and let it simmer for 3-4 minutes until it thickens.
  • STEP 4
    While the sauce is simmering, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil in a separate pan over medium-high heat. Fry the halloumi for 3-4 minutes until it turns golden brown on all sides.
  • STEP 5
    Once the halloumi is golden brown, add it to the sauce along with the spinach, sugar, and garam masala. Stir to combine and gently simmer for 5 minutes until the spinach wilts or defrosts. If the curry appears too thick, add a splash of water or more cream to adjust the consistency. Garnish with nigella seeds and serve with rice, grains, or naan.
