How to Sprouts - Moong Dal / Hesarukalu /Pesaru Pappu .... Kitchen Basics

Sprouting whole moon dal is an easy job. Once the pulses sprout they become very rich in vitamin C and A apart from the proteins they have. I love sprout moong just to snack on. Try the sprout without salt or any other additive they taste great. Sprouted moong dal can be used in salad / made into Subji or Gravy. Sprouts with a dash of lemon, pepper and salt are very good for breakfast as they provide the nutrients required the whole day.

Ingredients to prepare Moong sprouts :

1 cup Whole Moong dal
Water to wash and soke

To prepare Moong sprouts :

1. Soak Green Gram / Moong Dal / Hesaru Kalu  in plenty of water overnight. Moong beans get doubled once they sprout, so be careful not to make too much.
2. Next morning, drain off the entire water, rinse them with normal water, and drain the water again. Place the moong dal in a large mesh bowl and place this bowl in a big bowl as shown in the photo. Cover them with a moist muslin cloth and keep in a dark place.
3. Leave it like that for about 1 or 2 days. Rinse them with normal water, and drain the water again everyday morning & moist muslin cloth if it  gets dry. That’s it !! Wasn’t it the simplest way to get a healthiest recipe ever ?!!
4. These healthy Sprouts can be taken as is or can be cooked into various delicious recipes  like Sprout Pesarattu, Sprout Moong salad, mixed sprout lentils salad, molake hesrukaalina bassaru with palya,  molake hesrukaalina usli  !!!

Tips / Notes:

·        Also, you can sprout many other whole lentils in similar way.
·        U can use hot box to prepare sprouts instead of mesh bowl and muslin cloth by keeping the soaked and rinsed moong dal in hot box for 24 hrs.
