Greek yogurt has a lot less water in it.

It's always helpful if you explain what recipe or item you are making. I'm guessing that you're making bread? and that the recipe needs the wetness/fluid from regular yoghurt . Greek yoghurt is regular yoghurt drained (in sieve or cheesecloth)of fluid til it thickens.

Thank you so much! Was making Naan & recipe specifically stated not Greek. All makes sense now. Amazing how grocery shelves are stocked to the brim w Greek yogurt & only 1 brand of plain yogurt that isn't non fat or low fat. Naan turned out excellent!

Greek is more creamy and less sour
