Sprouting is a wonderful way to enhance the nutritional benefits of beans like moong, and it also adds to the flavour with a mild sweetness and pleasurable crunch. Here we show you how to make perfect Sprouted and Boiled Moong. This is not only a convenient way but also a healthy method, because we cook it in just the required amount of water, to avoid nutrient loss. You can add the sprouted moong to a salad, or toss it with some salt and chilli powder to enjoy it as a snack. You can also cook it further and use it to make healthy recipes like subzis and parathas.


Whole moong 1 Cup (16 tbs) (whole green gram, washed and drained)

1. Combine the moong and enough water in a deep bowl, cover with a lid and keep aside to soak for 6 hours.

2. Drain completely and tie them in a muslin cloth. Keep aside in a warm place to sprout for 10 to 12 hours. 

3. Combine the moong sprouts, 1¼ cups of water, salt and turmeric powder in a deep non-stick pan and mix well.
