Sprouts are very healthy and low in calories too. I was very thrilled i managed to sprout beans on my own at home without using any fancy equipment. All you need is a thin muslin or cotton cloth, the beans ofcoruse and thats it! If you can buy your sprouts thats fine too.
To sprout beans:
Wash beans till colour of the water runs transparent. Soak the beans overnight in water . Next day drain off the water and leave in a clean soft muslin or cotton cloth . I wrap the beans in the cloth and keep it on a plate. Leave it for 24 hours. If you see the cloth dry, just wet it slightly under the tap (this depends on the kind of climate). Leave it for 2 days, wetting it every 12 hours till the beans are sprouted. Now you can use your sprouts to make a salad!
INGREDIENTS FOR SALAD
Coriander leaves or parsley
Extra virgen spanish olive oil
Pinch of sugar
Chaat masala (this is the one i used…i love it)
Chop all the vegetables into small pieces. Mix all together. Whisk the extra virgen olive oil with lemon juice, salt, sugar. Pour ontop of the salad. Sprinkle with chaat masala. Toss well and serve.
NITU DIDI TIP: The vegetables can be added acording to your choice. For Jains please omit the onions and radish
