Pour the extra virgin olive oil and place the cheese slices in it. Fry on both sides until golden brown. Place them on a serving dish.

I sometimes, dust with flour before frying. Have you ever come across this? I think it really adds something, but I'm open for debate as I like to be authentic as possible?

Being Cypriot - we have hellim in a lot of things :) You must try it sliced and placed on top of toast that has been spread with honey... It's heavenly!
