Pour the lentils with one tablespoon of salt and two glasses of water into a pot and put on medium heat to cook for an hour.
Peel an onion and chop it finely. Grate the garlic cloves, then finely chop the parsley.
Put a pan on medium heat and add the olive oil, then add the onion and Saute for 5 minutes until golden.
After an hour, pour the lentils into the strainer to remove excess water. Once the lentils have cooled, pour them into a bowl.

Combine ingredients until smooth, then place a pan over medium heat and add vegetable oil.
After the oil heats up, take from the ingredients with a spoon and pour into the pan, then smooth around it with the back of a spoon and let it fry.
After 5 to 7 minutes, turn the Kookoo and fry the other side for 5 to 7 minutes. Fry all the Kookoos in the same way.
After frying the Kookoos, place them on tissue paper to remove excess oil, then serve with bread.
