Gerdaniye from Konya Cuisine

We have good news for those who love lamb. In our opinion, one of the most special things that came from the Seljuk Empire today is lamb meat, which we believe is the most delicious form; gerdaniye (neck). It’s already time for you to meet this taste, where we can feel the unique aroma of cinnamon.

We continue to share delicious Seljuk dishes with a new one. This dish, which you can prepare with neck, one of the most delicious parts of lamb meat, will amaze everyone with its taste. We can say that cinnamon, which adds a slight sweetness to the dishes it is added to, goes especially well with meat dishes. So how is Gerdaniye made?


  • 1 lamb neck meat 
  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • salt 
  • cinnamon powder


Heat the oil and turn the meat over and seal. Sprinkle salt and add enough hot water to cover it. Cook until the water reduces, for about 1 hour. Place it on a serving plate with its broth and serve by sprinkling cinnamon powder.
