My taste affair with polenta is far from over and the next installment are these highly addictive Polenta Crumbed Haloumi Chips. And I am not even going to pretend that they are in any way good for you, unless you only have one but that is impossible.

Polenta Crumbed Haloumi Chips

I tend to keep an eye on trends, not to necessarily follow them (like kimchi on a pizza…) but to see what is happening in the food world and it seems that haloumi is getting a bit more attention these days. And its being used far more than just fried and served with a squeeze of lemon, as close to perfect as that is. So this recipe from Donna Hay was a winner for me, combining two of my favourite ingredients in an interesting way.

I am not a fan of deep frying and do it as little as possible so the recipe was even more appealing as the haloumi “chips” are baked in the oven. The crunch from the panko (Japanese breadcrumbs) and polenta is insanely good and you struggle to not reach for another chip as soon as you have finished one.

The panko I used was a bit too course so I found that it did not stick as well as I would have liked so suggest you crush it just a bit finer. There is also that bit of wastage when dipping foods so I have reduced the panko and polenta from the original recipe as there was too much left after all the chips were dipped.

The suggestion is to serve the haloumi chips with aioli but I quickly made a tomato chipotle sauce but cooking down a tin of tomatoes with some olive oil and a few chopped chipotle chillies. I made the sauce ahead of time to let it cool down in the fridge and loved the play between a piping hot chip and the cold smoky tomato dipping sauce. Enjoy!
