  • 1/4 cup mung bean
  • water as needed


  • Method 1:
  • To begin with first soak green moong bean in water for 8 hrs or overnight.
  • Rinse well and drain water completely.
  • After that, transfer it to a hot box, spread it.
  • Close it and set aside for a day or minimum 8-10 hrs.
  • Now tiny sprouts has come after 8 hrs. Rinse it well and use it.
  • Method 2:
  • To begin with first transfer soaked beans to a muslin cloth.
  • Pull the edges twist and turn to tighten it completely.
  • Keep it inside a bowl.
  • Keep covered for a day.
  • Check and sprouts must have come like this.
  • Enjoy it as such or make salad.


  • This method can be used for any type of bean. Depending of the type of bean chosen it takes time to sprout.
  • I prefer medium length sprouts or smaller ones as its easy to eat.
  • But if you prefer lengthy sprouts then you can keep it for another day. But in that case sprinkle water to avoid drying up at the ends. Also the cloth dries up after a day so make sure to keep it moist by sprinkling little water.
