Cilbir is a delicious Turkish dish of poached eggs with garlicky skyr, This dish can be served as a hot mezze or weekend breakfast and is often topped with a spiced oil. I love the taste of the tangy skyr paired with creamy, soft, yolks and a hint of spice. As I was searching for a recipe, I found the perfect one by Ozlem (@ozlems_turkish_table), who was born and raised in Turkey. The dish comes together quickly, so you can even make it on a weekday morning before you start your day.
A couple of tips: Chili flakes can vary widely in terms of heat, so start with a little bit and adjust as needed to infuse the oil. Make sure to scoop up the creamy yogurt with some pide or crusty bread. A garnish of chopped herbs keeps the dish fresh and bright.
