Pumpkin, Pea and Haloumi Fritters

These haloumi fritters are a great way to get some vegetables into the kids (and adults!). They’re a great casual vegetarian meal that the whole family will love

The grated haloumi makes them really tasty, along with the touch of curry powder for heat and flavour. Use a mild curry powder if that’s your preference. A simple salad with herbs is the perfect accompaniment to these haloumi fritters, with a dollop of tomato chutney on the side.
