I found this recipe on a blog called Turmeric and Saffron. It is wonderful served with Persian rice and warm pita bread.

Very easy to make, and tastes great! I increased the amount of turmeric a bit, and served on fresh pita bread. I also sprinkled a little feta cheese on it when serving, and it was delicious!
