Take the required amount of beans. I have 1 cup of mung bean here.
Remember, it will double once sprouted. So prepare only the amount you can consume within 2 weeks.
Wash your beans well in cold water till the water runs clear.
Drain and then place it in a bowl or sprouter if you possess one.
Fill it with cold water until immersed well. (2 to 3 times the quantity of the seeds).
Soak overnight or at least for 8-12 hours.
Drain the water well. Rinse again with cold water and drain it again.
You can use cheesecloth, paper cloth or just a plain jar for sprouting.
If you are using plain jar, then cover it with a light cloth.
Place them in a low light and at room temperature.
How long to grow your sprouts and approximate days taken:
If you want only little sprouts, (1/4 â€“ 1/2 inch roots): Rinse and drain every 8-12 hours for 2-3 days.
If you just want to grow big mung sprouts (1 â€“ 3 inch roots): Rinse and drain every 8-12 hours for 4-5 days.
