Liked this, but played around with the spices the second time I made this -- skipped the turmeric and cit the cinnamon in half, added a bit of garlic powder and some chopped fresh oregano. Thought the ,changes produced more of a Greek-forward flavor. Nice easy meal that reminded me of snacks/meals I had in the Greek islands. Worth making.
