Easy way to sprout mung beans at home. Making sprouted beans is effortless and this recipe is fool proof.
- 1 Cup Moong Bean / Mung Bean
- Wash the mung beans in lots of water 2-3 times to get rid of the dirt and dust. Soak the mung bean in water for 8-10 hours or over night. After 8 hour soak, the bean would have considerably swollen. Drain the beans and rinse the beans. Set aside.
- Set the drained beans in a bowl and cover it with a lid and set aside in a relatively dark place. I kept it inside a kitchen cupboard. Allow it to germinate for the next 24 hours. After about 24 hours, it will look like this. The bean would have started sprouting vigorously. It might take longer time to germinate if the weather is slightly cold. It will germinate fast in hot and humid conditions.
- At this stage, use the sprouted bean immediately or store in the refrigerator and use it within the next 2 days.
