      This was a very tasty dish. I liked the use of cinnamon and paprika as a curry. I was a little heavy on the paprika, but I like it, so it was very good. I was also heavy on the cumin as that is a favorite too. I used lemon instead of the orange juice, and I don't know if it made a difference or not.
