  1. 2 halloumi (i’d say even 3 as Cypriot ones are a lot bigger than the ones we get here)
  2. 1kg all purpose flour
  3. 0.5 mug of semi-skimmed milk
  4. 1.5 mug of lukewarm water
  5. 4 tbsp olive oil
  6. 3 tbsp of yeast (1.5 sachets)
  7. 4 tbsp dried mint
  8. Salt (i added roughly 10g)


  1. Cut all the halloumi into cubes
  2. In one mug of lukewarm water, add the yeast, mix and leave for 10 minutes aside
  3. In a deep bowl, add the flour and the salt (to be well mixed together)
  4. Open a hole in the middle and add the oil and the milk. Mix well with your hands.
  5. Add the water with the yeast and the rest of the water and knead well. The dough shouldn’t be sticking on your hands by the end.
  6. Add the halloumi and the mint and mix well.
  7. Pre heat your oven at 180 degrees.
  8. Cut your dough in 25 portions and make them into balls. Put on a tray with baking paper and leave for 30 minutes covered to rise.
  9. In a bowl break an egg and beat it. Use a brush, and brush the egg on top of your pies.
  10. Cook in the oven until they become rose gold on top. (I was checking every 15 minutes and took roughly 30 mins).


After I added all the liquids my dough was still very dry and i could see a lot of flour not mixed well. So i added roughly another .5 cup of water and mixed well. I guess depends on your flour so see how it is for you. In general is a stiff dough and when you add the halloumi it becomes a bit more manageable!

It’s roughly 250 calories per pie if you care about the calories
