  • 1 cup Whole Moong Beans
  • 1 Muslin Cloth
  • 1 big Container


  • Wash and soak whole moong beans in enough water.Soak for minimum of 8 hours or overnight.

  • After 8 hours moong beans will absorb water and swell up to minimum thrice in volume.

  • Now drain the beans on a colander and wash with fresh water.Discard /drain the water completely from the beans.

  • Transfer the beans in a jar/ bowl or vessel /Colander ,in which you want to sprout the beans .

  • Cover the jar/ bowl /colander with a piece of muslin cloth / paper napkin /plastic sieve lid and tie with a ribbon or rubber band.

  • Wait for a day or minimum 12 hours .Sprouting also depends on the climate, I got these sprouts in 12 hours as the weather is hot in Dubai.

  • Don’t shake or move or disturb the bunch of sprouts if you want to make them thick like store brought sprouts,occasionally sprinkle little water on them to keep them moist .

  • If you want to make long sprouts then wait for 2-3 days and keep the sprouts moist by sprinkling some water on them and then draining the extra water.

  • Your healthy sprouts will be ready after 3 days . Enjoy !
