What could be more delightful around tea-time than pastries crammed with coarse grated Halloumi?
Pastry: 1 kilo plain flour, 3-3 1/2 cups pure orange juice (a treat in itself), 2 teaspoons
baking powder, 1 cup vegetable oil, a pinch of salt
For the filling: 2 whole Halloumi grated (coarse), 250g grated cheddar.
Fresh chopped mint, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1 medium onion-finely chopped, 4-5
eggs, Milled black pepper
Making the pastry - Simply mix the flour with baking powder and salt. Add the oil and rub
well. Add the orange juice, little by little and make the dough. Cover the dough and let it
rest for a while.
Making the Filling - Firstly, mix all the ingredients together. Divide the pastry into equal
parts, then roll out into oval shapes. Fill and close by pinching the sides together to make
the pastries. Place in an oiled baking tray, brush with the beaten egg and cook in a hot
oven for 20-25 minutes until gloriously, golden brown. Halloumi Pastries are also perfect
for buffets. Simply make into very small sizes, adding chopped ham for even more
