Moong Sprouts

They are rich in protein, fiber and have high levels of folate, Vitamin C, K, magnesium, phosphorus and antioxidants. Sprouting green gram makes them easily digestible

Ingredients

  • Moong  / Green gram – ½ cup
  • Water – for soaking

Method

  • Wash ½ cup moong and discard the stones and broken beans.
  • In a bowl, add the washed moong and enough water. Soak them for 9-12 hours. Do not cover the bowl as the sprouts will develop order. Cover with a mesh basket.
  • After soaking for 9-12 hours, rinse the moong with water. Drain the water.

Sprouting moong in a bowl

  • Transfer the rinsed and drained soaked moong to a bowl. Cover partially and keep the bowl in a dark and warm place away from sunlight. Do not cover completely. Within 12 hours they would sprout on their own. 
  • Once sprouted, rinse with clean water.
  • The sprouts can be eaten raw or they can be stir – fried or steamed.

Sprouting in a cloth.

  • Rinse a clean muslin cloth and squeeze off excess water. 
  • Spread the cloth and transfer the washed and drained soaked moong into the cloth.
  • Bring all the edges of the cloth together, roll tightly and make a knot to bundle the moong. Rolling tightly helps the sprouts grow thicker. 
  • Place the cloth bundle in a bowl and cover it partially. 
  • Place the bowl in a warm and dark place and let it sit for 8 hours.
  • Sprinkle some water on the cloth and let it sit for a few more hours. The moong would sprout on their own. 
  • Once sprouted, rinse with clean water.
  • The sprouts can be eaten raw or they can be stir – fried or steamed.
