Making sprouts at home  is always preferred as the home made sprouts are clean and much healthier than the store bought.
It is very easy .... you just need to choose the clean legumes of your choice,wash them soak them and then wrap them in a damp cloth.Rest all ... time does the magic!It's so easy!!

The process of making mixed sprouts:

  • I chose a cup of green moong,a fist full of black chana and less than that black eye beans/lobia(ಅಲಸಂದೆ)
  • washed them thoroughly.. and soaked in water for about 8 hours.
  • then drained out the soaked water as in the picture below.

  • put the soaking legume into a damp cloth and  tied it.Stored in a warm place for  a day and half!
  • what you see when I opend it after the stipulated time. see pic 3 below!

Isn't that easy!?... use the sprouts in various recipes or just eat raw with a dash of salt and lime juice!
