Yoghurt is a type dessert for most of the Europeans and it is usually eaten with sugar or marmalade or something sweet. Now think about eating yoghurt with garlic and something else..like carrot. How does it sound? Just try once before making any decisions on it.
Unlike here in Europe, yoghurt is one of the most popular ingredient in Turkey. We use it in many dishes and especially for the “mezes” which are really easy and good options for hot summer dinners.
I don’t know what exactly “tarator” means (havuç = carrots) so I can’t give any more information about this food but here is the recipe for it:
- 4 medium size Carrots (peeled)
- 125 gr Yoghurt
- 1 clove garlic (crushed)
- 5 tbsp olive oil
Grate the carrots and fry them in a pan with the olive oil until carrots become softer.
In another plate mix the crushed garlic with the yoghurt. Wait for carrots to cool down and add the garlic yoghurt and salt.
