Structure or Matter for Lentil Pancakes:

Preparation for Lentil Pancakes:
Rinse and strain the lentil grains. Cover lentils with water. And leave for 3 hours.
Place the present lentils in a blender bowl, along with the water in which it was infused. The amount of water by this time will decrease, since it will be partially absorbed by the lentil grains, but the remaining water will be quite enough to dilute the “dough” to the desired consistency.
If you do not want to use the same water in which the lentils were infused, strain the grains thoroughly, measure the unabsorbed amount of water and replace it with an equal amount of fresh drinking water.
Grind the lentils in a blender for 3-4 minutes, until you get a completely smooth and homogeneous, puree-like mass.
Lentils are soft, so usually even a hand blender can do the job.
To the resulting mass, add a little salt and ground pepper to taste, as well as ground paprika and a mixture of dried herbs or spices to your liking. Mix everything well.
The dough is ready, you can start frying the pancakes. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat and brush the bottom with a thin layer of vegetable oil. Pour 2 tablespoons into the pan. dough and smooth it in a circular motion with a thin layer until you get a pancake with a diameter of about 12 cm.
You can fry pancakes without oil, in a dry frying pan, but in this case, the surface of the pancakes tastes a little dry.
Fry the pancake over medium heat for 1.5 minutes on one side, until the surface of the dough dries slightly and becomes dull. Then turn the pancake over and fry for about 1 minute on the other side.
