Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil. Add carrots and cook until just tender. Drain and return the carrots to the pan. Set aside.
Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Saute onion and garlic until soft, about 5 minutes. Transfer the onion and garlic to the saucepan with the carrots and pour in chicken stock. Turn heat to medium-low, cover and simmer for 25 minutes to blend flavours.
Puree the carrot mixture in a food processor or liquidiser, in small batches if necessary. Return to the saucepan and stir in the milk, dill and chives. Cook just until heated through and serve.
