This simple Turkish Garlic & Yoghurt Sauce is the perfect partner for all kinds of Middle Eastern Fare. Excellent with meat and poultry, game and even fish it's a creamy, garlicky dream!
This sauce is ubiquitous in every Istanbul kebab shop and it's slathered over everything! There are many varieties of yoghurt sauces and accompaiments in Turkish cuisine - Caçik (essentially the same as Greek Tzatziki) which features cucumber and the delicious Haydari, a thick yoghurt, garlic and herb Mezze that is something quite spectacular.
You could also try the magnificently garlicky Lebanese Toum for a flavour explosion.
Garlic Breath - worth it!
The garlic is strong in this dish so, if you're doing anything for the next week or so, steer clear. The yoghurt is so perfect with grilled meats like kebabs, and works with seafood too. It's a great sour, cold note to warm, spiced meats. I could eat it on everything.
If I'm feeling super lazy, I like nothing more than pigging out on a bowl of this Turkish garlic & yoghurt sauce and loaf of bread and absolutely no interruptions! It's as easy to prepare as it is addictive so get yourself ready for some easy breezy Turkey breath!
