Turkish Carrot Appetizer

Hello everyone, we are cooking one of the delicious turish appetizer/side dish/salad which is called ` Havuc Tarator ` basically ` Carrot Appetizer `.

It is making with carrot, yogurt and garlic. So simple, easy and delicious. 

Turkish people love appetizers. Especially when we get together with our family members or friends instead everyone eating a whole meal, everyone will order appetizer in the middle to share. That way everyone eat different things and mostly eat less. This food is one of that appetizers we mostly eat. 

Surprisingly, when we cook carrot its texture turn into soft and sweet. When it get together with yogurt and garlic that is the taste you will be surprise how something simple can turn into that much delicious food. 

Also because it is only vegetable and yogurt it is super healthy especillay with garlic!! If you are a vegetarian such a good choice to consider when you want something quick and delicious.
