Popular Indian cookbook chef Ritu Dalmia now offers a selection of vegetable yummies. We have bringing you recipes from her latest cookbook, one-a-day. Today it's Halloumi skewers with cherry tomatoes and onions!
Since the past two days we've been sharing with you award-winning chef, restaurateur and bestselling author Ritu Dalmia's vegetarian recipes from her new book Diva Green: A Vegetarian Cookbook
Today, we bring you the recipe for:
Halloumi skewers with cherry tomatoes and onions
Even though some people are of the opinion that halloumi has no taste, I absolutely love this salty, dense cheese that features prominently in most Middle Eastern and North African menus. It has a very high melting point, which it makes it one of the few cheeses that grill really well.
250 g halloumi cheese, cubed
100 g cherry tomatoes, whole
100g baby onion, whole
(The tomatoes, onions and halloumi cubes should be roughly of the same size)
100 ml extra virgin olive oil
1 clove of garlic, minced
A handful of mint leaves, torn
Salt and chilly flakes to season
Lime wedges to serve
