For the sauce
To make the halloumi burger, mix together the spices and coat each halloumi slice thoroughly. Set aside while you make the onion rings.
To make the onion rings, fill a deep-fat fryer or a large, deep, heavy-bottomed pan two-thirds full with the oil. Heat to 180C (a cube of bread should turn brown in one minute when dropped in.) CAUTION: Hot oil can be dangerous. Do not leave unattended.
Mix together the batter ingredients and coat each onion ring well, then deep-fry for 2 minutes, until golden-brown. Drain on kitchen paper.
To cook the halloumi, heat the vegetable oil in a frying pan over a medium heat and fry for a minute on each side, until softened and blistering.
Toast the burger buns and top with some sauce, Little Gem lettuce, the halloumi and an onion ring.
