Preheat oven to 220°C. Place ½ teaspoon of oil in each hole of a 24-hole (1½ tablespoon-capacity) mini muffin pan. Place in oven for five minutes to heat up. Meanwhile, combine haloumi, corn, egg, flour, lemon rind and chives in a bowl. Divide the mixture among prepared holes. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden and crisp.
