Its perfect for a protein packed breakfast that keeps you going during the day!

How to sprout Mung beans at home?

  • Day 1:Soaking: Take one cup mung beans and soak them overnight. Make sure they are soaked in double the quantity of water as the beans.
  • Day 2: In the morning remove the water and wash them 2-3 times. Put them back in the same container and loosely close the container as if we are letting them breathe. Shake the beans such that the ones at the bottom of the container are at the top. Spray few drops of water. Do not let the water dry out.
  • Day 3: Check the beans, they have sprouted.
