Green Bean Sprouts | Moong Dal Sprouts


Green Bean or Moong Dal Sprouts are one of the easy thing to prepare and very healthy.  As my this year plan is to start posting reader request this is one of those requested recipe.  I not really a big sprouts fan other than for moong dal, any other sprout I can easily give a miss.   I used to sprout a lot and then in between I totally stopped doing it for no reason what so ever.  For past few weeks I again started to sprouts moong bean and guess what I doing this every alternative days now.


As most of the recipes even moong dal sprouts are made in few ways but I always follow the below method and satisfied with result.  The best way and to absorb all the nutrition from sprouts is to eat it raw but I know that's not everyone's cup of tea so for a start you can try making this simple khichdi with sprouts.  And as you have guessed I will post some sprouts recipes soon.
