In Gmail, how do I create a contact from a recipient of an email?

There's a sidebar that pops up offering to add people on the message to my circles, but not my address book. Is there a way other than cut-n-pasting that lets me take one or more addresses from an email (to/from/cc) and put them in my address book? I'm looking for something analogous to the 'take address' feature in pine/alpine.

Apart from the "Add to Circles", the side pane also has the options to add the contact.
