  • As with all of our recipes, the calories per serving of garlic yoghurt with carrots is a general guide and will vary depending on the brand of yoghurt you use and how much olive oil you wish to add.
  • We use Turkish süzme (strained) yoghurt for this recipe. If you can't get this where you are, Greek yoghurt is also good to use.
