Sprouted grains recipe  

Beans and peas are sprouts that include lentils, chickpeas, mung beans, soybeans, kidney beans, and green peas. Now the grain you want to sprout, first, wash it thoroughly with clean water. 

It is very important to wash the sprouts thoroughly with water before eating, as this removes the particles of fungus or pesticide on the grain. After washing the grain, now soak it in water for at least six hours.

After about six hours, take out its water. After draining all the water, now take a clean and white cotton cloth and wet it. Put the soaked sprouts in this cloth and keep it. Keep the grains in this for about 6 to 8 hours. Sprinkle water on the cloth occasionally so that it becomes easier for the grains to germinate.

After 12 to 14 hours, open the grain and check it. If small white sprouts have come out in the grain, then it is okay, otherwise, sprinkle a little water and keep it for a few more hours. When white sprouts emerge, this process continues and germination increases rapidly.

Sprouted grains are easily and cleanly prepared at home. In the summer season, grains and seeds sprout quickly, but in winter, the process of germination takes a little longer. The shell life of sprouted grains is only two to three days when kept in the refrigerator. So make it in limited quantity only. By keeping it for a long time, bacteria start growing in it very quickly.
