Mevlana Pastry

Mevlana pastry, which is a flavor unique to Konya, is formed by preparing the finely opened doughs with the desired mortar and folding them in the form of a triangle and baking them in the oven. Mevlana Pastry is one of the famous tastes of Konya. This Pastry, which everyone eats fondly, takes its name from the famous philosopher Mevlana Celaleddin Rumi.


  • ·     100 grams of butter
  • ·      3.5 cups flour
  • ·      1 teacup yogurt
  • ·      Half a teacup of water
  • ·      4 egg yolks
  • ·      2 egg whites
  • ·      1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ·      1 teaspoon salt

For the Stuffing

  • ·      125 grams of grated feta cheese
  • ·      1 bunch of parsley
  • ·      1 teaspoon black pepper
  • ·      2 egg whites



Put the flour, yogurt, baking soda, eggs and salt in a large bowl and knead so that you get a soft consistency dough. Divide the resulting dough into walnut-sized meringues, cover with a damp cloth and let it rest for 10-15 minutes. Put the butter and greased dough three in a row and wait for the fat to freeze. Mix all the ingredients necessary for the internal mortar in a large bowl. Divide the resulting square into four parts, putting the inner mortar in the middle and closing it in the form of a triangle. Bake in a preheated 180-degree oven. Put the cooked pastries into the serving dish.
