For the tzatziki: In a medium bowl, combine yogurt, garlic, mint, dill, lemon juice, olive oil, grated cucumber, salt and pepper. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
In a shallow bowl, combine flour, 1 teaspoon dried oregano, and 1/2 teaspoon cayenne.
In a separate shallow bowl, combine panko, breadcrumbs, remaining 1 teaspoon dried oregano, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon cayenne.
In a separate shallow bowl, whisk egg whites.
Dredge each halloumi fry in the flour mixture, then egg whites, then breadcrumb mixture.
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Cook each fry until golden brown on all sides, about 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined sheet. Let cool and serve immediately with tzatziki.
