Making Sprouts

  1. Transfer the soaked moat beans into a colander. When most of the water is drained, cover the colander from all the sides with a kitchen towel/ clean towel. Keep them in a warm place. Moat beans start germinating very quickly, and you will notice small sprouts germinating in a couple of hours in summers and in about 6-7 hours in winters. If you want longer sprouts keep them for longer time period (may be one/ two days depending on the weather). Do not forget to wash the seeds twice a day in summers so that no infection develops.
  2. Moat sprouts are ready to use.
