Mildly spicy dressing:

How we will proceed:

1. Soak the red lentils in water for 30 minutes or longer, then drain and set aside.

3. In a food processor, roughly blend soaked lentils, garlic cloves, and fresh parsley with cilantro.

4. Mix the resulting lentil mixture into the cooled fried vegetables and season with dried cumin, dried coriander, salt, chili flakes, and ground black pepper. Mix well and refrigerate the mixture for 30 minutes.

5. Creamy white dressing: In a bowl, mix sour cream, mayonnaise, minced garlic, and season with salt, black pepper, and lemon juice – mix well and refrigerate.

6. Mildly spicy dressing: In another bowl, mix chili powder with chili flakes, add vinegar and season with salt – mix well and refrigerate.

7. Wet your hands with water and shape small pancakes from the lentil mixture, then place them in a pan with heated oil – fry them on each side until golden and crispy.
