vel  "cover, coat, mask"  (Lieven Litaer < MO, 1/09/2012):

  rav vel tlhIm 
  the carpet covers the floor

  rav velmeH tlhIm lo' 
  lay a carpet ("use a carpet to cover the floor") 

pID  "coat (food) with herbed mixture":

KGT 89f.:  if [the meat] is fresh, the 'cook' may {pID} it, which involves coating it with herbed granulated cartilage (not necessarily from the same animal) mixed with some kind of {tIr} (grain) and doing very little else. The name of the granulated cartilage is {ngat}, which has also come to mean gunpowder. 

{qat} "wrap, encase" might also work, though we have no examples other than a musical metaphor:

KGT 76:  The verb {qat} literally means "wrap, encase", the imagery apparently being that the instrumentation adds the final, though not absolutely necessary, touches.
