Sprouting

Sprouting is the generic process of germination of seeds. Generally, pulses of all kinds can be sprouted. The sprouts can be consumed raw or cooked.

To sprout, take the pulse / legume that you want to sprout. Be it – groundnuts/peanuts, green gram, fenugreek seeds or whatever. Soak them in water overnight or 10-12 hours. Next morning, rinse them well with fresh water. This time do not leave excess water. Keep the vessel covered. Keep washing at regular intervals. Depending on the legume, germination time varies. Usually, you will notice germination towards the end of the day. Now, the sprouts are ready for use!
