  • Vegetarian: no

  • Synonyms: Fried Cheese

Cheeses such as queso blanco, halloumi and paneer have a high melting point that makes it suitable to grill or fry. The cheese melts slightly, but largely retains its shape when grilled or pan-fried. It is commonly cut into slices and dusted with/without a light coating of flour or corn starch, before frying.
