Turkish Cilbir - Eggs with Garlic Yoghurt

August 11, 2020

Simple to make, and so good.


  • 1 cup Greek yoghurt
  • 1 clove fresh garlic (or equiv­a­lent­ly, 1/​2 tea­spoon of pre-minced garlic)
  • Olive oil
  • Chilli flakes
  • 4 eggs


  1. Mix the garlic into the yoghurt.
  2. Add olive oil and chilli flakes to a pan over medium heat and cook for a few min­utes.
  3. Cook eggs in a way that pre­serves the runny yolk. Most sites do it poached, but I don’t yet know how to poach eggs so I did it sunny-side up instead, still tastes great.

To plate it, first scoop the yoghurt onto the plate, then add the eggs on top of the yoghurt, then final­ly drench the dish with the chilli-infused olive oil.
