  • 1 pack halloumi
  • 1 tin chopped tomatoes
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp poppy seeds
  • 1-1 1/2mug basmati rice (you can also use long grain rice but need more than 1 mug-full)
  • 4 cloves
  • 1/2 chilli
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 large fresh tomatoes (boil and remove the skins)


  1. Cut the halloumi into small cubes and drizzle in olive oil before placing under the grill (leave for no more than 10 mins)

  2. Finely chop and fry the onion, garlic, chilli and poppy seeds in the sunflower oil until the onions are golden.

  3. Add the cloves, chopped tomatoes, fresh tomatoes, ground coriander, cinnamon stick and ground cinnamon. Leave to simmer.

  4. Boil the rice. Add the halloumi to the sauce and leave on a low heat until rice is cooked through. Serve with a glass of cool milk (or cool beer for adults) to create the perfect combination!
