I made sprouted mung beans just last week because we can't find them so frequently in our supermarkets. and apart from that i love to make as many things at home for cooking because then i actually know and see what goes in during the process :).
I made a spicy batter from flour and coated the sprouted beans in it and fried it. It was simply heavenly!! The crunchy batter combined with the soft sprouts was really good!!
