How to Make Sprouts
Preparation Time : 5 mins
Sprouting Time : 7 to 8 days
Organic Green Gram / Moong Bean – 1/2 cup
Wash and soak moong bean in water overnight. Drain them.
Line a sieve with clean cloth and put the moong bean on it in a single layer.
Now take a large container, place a small bowl in the bottom and place this sieve into the container. Cover with another cloth and put a lid partially covered. Let it sprout overnight.
Next day wash it well and put it again in the container.
Keep doing this for 7 to 8 days untill the moong beans are nicely grown.
Now remove it from the cloth and remove the roots and leaves and use.
1)Washing moong bean daily is much. If you can wash in the morning and evening.
2)You can harvest the moong sprouts from 5th day onwards.
3)Remove the roots, but you can keep the leaves.
