Learn how to make sprouts, with step by step pictures and video, a simple and mess free method followed in our home for more than 20 years.
   I don’t know  how i missed posting this recipe in my space, as it is a usual practice at my place to make sprouts twice in a week.  My husband and his brothers and even my mil used to eat raw sprouts everyday along with breakfast. Initially i was hesitant to eat the raw sprouts and later when i started eating them raw, i liked the taste and even slowly my kids started eating sprouts now a days. I learnt to make this easy way from my mother in law and i wanted to share the procedure of how to make Sprouts at home.
Also read the notes section without fail.

Home made sprouts

Method with step by step pictures :

  • Wash and soak the green moong dal in water, for 6 hours.
  • Drain the water completely.
  • Spread this in a casserole (hot box| hot pack) and close it and keep it untouched for 10- 12 hours.(preferably over night). Do not crowd the hot box, use a bigger one to spread it well. 
  •  I soaked at 9 am in the morning and put this in the hot box around 3 pm. I opened at 6 am in the morning. 
  • You can see the nice moong sprouts the next morning.
  • Store this in an airtight container and keep it inside the refrigerator. 
  • This sprouts will stay good for 8-10 days. 
How to make sprouts

Notes:
  1. The quality of green moong bean is most important and if it is a old stock or too dried ones, sprouting will not happen properly.
  2. Always select a dark green colour green moong bean.
  3. Always soak the green moong dal in clean drinking water.
  4. Soaking time should not be less than 6 hours.
  5. If using any other lentil like black channa or white channa, soak for 10 to 11 hours.

  33. Hey... might sound like a silly question, but since I've tried sprouting earlier and it caught fungus.. :(
    so im going to try your method... so back to my question.. after draining the water, how dry should the beans be, right before you put them in the casserole? Should I pat them dry with a paper towel, or let them be wet after draining the water? Pls help

    1. Hi Mrs.Navy,
      Thanks for writing to me. After draining the beans, do not dry too much as the sprouting will not come if it is too dry, so do not pat dry.
      And ensure that there shouldn't be any water too. Just the beans should be moist and you can feel the wetness if you touch them. Many times this will get fungus if there is too much of water also.
      Hope this will help u

    2. Alternatively you can also use a strainer, drain the water completely and then place in the casserole should give out wonderful sprouts as the beans would have already sucked in enough water to sprout

  36. So with the hot box, It's great because it's insulated, keeps moisture and is dark correct. Overnight is pretty fast for that amount of sprouting as far as I can tell. The hot box differs from a crock pot in that it has no actively heating element right?

    Just trying to understand the pros of them, as they're not cheap. I've been using my fido jars.

    Also, I always thought the use of a hand cloth or towel was to ensure that gases could circulate while still keeping heat in.
