8. Prepare other phyllo dough sheets and place into the baking sheet.
9. In a small bowl, mix grape molasses and water, brush the pastries with this mixture, it gives more golden brown color to our pastries like egg wash.
10. Sprinkle some sesame and Nigella seeds and bake about 30 minutes or until the color becomes golden brown.

Footnote: Instead of phyllo dough you can use vegan puff pastry or crescent dough. Add any spice you want, I just use cumin and black pepper.
Tips: Baking time depends on your oven, check time to time. Instead of green lentil, you can use boiled mung bean. I gave spiral shape, you can prepare in different shapes.
