Do you remember the home made Haloumi Cheese I posted earlier. This what I made with two of the blocks. Haloumi is a cheese very famous in Cyprus and this is used in a variety of dishes including a very simple grilled cheese. This cheese has a high melting point and so it can be grilled easily, so much like our Paneer. I have a salad recipe in line. Will post it later. But today we will see how to grill it. It is the easiest way to serve this cheese.
I don’t have a grill pan and so I did it on a tawa. So my cheese is missing those cute grill lines. But if you have a grill pan, do use it. For seasoning, I used just salt and pepper. If you have store bought cheese, check for its saltiness before adding salt. Because store bought cheeses are quite salty.
