These are great as a mid week easy meal, haloumi cheese is such a versatile ingredient

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 250g Frozen peas
  • 1/2 cup Milk
  • 2 Eggs
  • 30g Cornflour
  • 2/3 cup Plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp Baking powder
  • 250g Haloumi cheese cut into cubes
  • 100ml Olive oil
  • 1 Shallot thinly sliced
  • 150g Corn kernels
  • 1 pinch Cumin
  • 1 Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Boil peas in salted water for 2 minutes, then drain. Rinse under cold water, then drain again. Puree half the peas in a food processor until smooth.
  2. Whisk milk, eggs, flours, baking powder and pureed peas in a bowl, then fold in remaining peas, corn, cumin, haloumi, shallots, salt and pepper.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large non-stick frypan over medium-high heat. Add tablespoonsful of the mixture to the pan, in batches, pressing down to flatten slightly, and fry for 2-3 minutes or until golden on both sides. Drain on paper towels.


You can hide as many vegetables as you like in these too, grated zucchini, mashed pumpkin use your imagination!

  • Haloumi is very versatile. Thanks for the recipe.


  • Fritters are fabulous and oh so tasty – peas just make these fritters even better.


  • Agreed. Halomui is a great ingredient.


  • Sounds great. I am a big fan of fried Haloumi so this is a nice change.


  • Ooh yum. I make a version of these but not with haloumi. I’ve never tried this but I’m hearing it a lot lately.


  • ive never really had lucky with this type of cheese….I guess i cook in wrong as its always like rubber :(


  • Ooh I do like this. Yummy!


  • Looks good – happy to see another haloumi recipe, since my kids love it!


  • Omg I won’t close this on my browser scared I will lost the recipe haha so yum!!!!!


  • thanks for posting this awesome recipe


  • yummy this is a great recipe


  • I’m not a fan of peas at all. But I think it would be nice with maybe zucchini instead.


  • I won’t be reserving these for dinner parties, they look too good. Think I’ll adopt these as a staple mid-week snack!


  • Yum, these sound delish. I’ve never tried haloumi, but have seen it used on the cooking shows.


  • Mine would see the peas and run a mile, although they will eat frozen ones and cooked ones with a roast.
