Taste of Cyprus Local Food Kaseri saganaki

Kaseri saganaki

Cut the cheese into slices around 3x6cm and 1cm thick. Mix cumin and corn flour and coat the cheese in it. Keep to one side.
Prepare the salad by mixing the ingredients in a bowl.
Heat the oil in a frying pan and add the pieces of lime peel. Remove before they brown, and dry on kitchen paper. This helps to fragrance the oil and the peel also serves as garnish.
Fry the cheese, for 1-2 minutes on each side until golden.
Divide in 4 portions, add the salad and garnish with fried peel and lime slices. Serve with fresh brown bread.
