Mix eggs, milk, oil, water, and salt in a bowl.

Lay out a sheet of filo dough, then pour a little of the mixture, and

spread it over the sheet. Repeat twice, for a total of 3 layers.

Mix feta cheese and cook spinach before spreading over the filo dough.

Roll from one end to the other to get a strip, cut into triangles, and place it on a baking sheet.

Brush every triangle with egg yolk, sprinkle with poppy seeds, and bake it at 180°C (356°F) for 15 minutes.
