Note: How to sprout mixed beans at home?

  • Wash beans of your choice thoroughly, for this recipe I have chosen moong and black gram. Keep in mind moong starts germinating early.
  • Soak your beans overnight. Soak both the beans separately.
  • Next day, drain water and keep your beans in a container covered with a wet cloth.
  • Keep the container aside, and check next day.
  • If you are satisfied with length of your sprouts use them, otherwise cover with wet cloth again and check again next day.
  • This is how I sprout my beans.
