Since you need only 1/4 cup of cooked rice for the patties, we suggest using a microwavable pouch of precooked rice. Measure out 1/4 cup and add it to the lentil mixture. Save the rest of the rice for another use. You can also use brown rice instead of white, if you prefer.

Place lentils and 4 cups water in a large saucepan; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until lentils are tender. Drain well.
Combine breadcrumbs and next 5 ingredients in a food processor; process until blended. Add lentils, rice, 1 tablespoon oil, and egg whites; process until coarsely chopped.
Divide mixture into 8 (1/4-cup) portions, and shape each into a 1/4-inch-thick patty.
Heat remaining oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add patties; cook 3 minutes on each side or until browned. Serve with Yogurt Sauce.
