☑How to sprout mung beans

My method of sprouting is very easy. It always works for me. The most important requirements for sprouting are

1. Soaking time of mung beans

2. Temperature 

3. Percentage of water left in the container after soaking..

Summer is the perfect time for sprouting. In winter, it takes little longer time.

♨ Let's get started 

◾Wash and soak mung beans in enough water for 8-10 hours.

◾After that you have to drain the water and rinse once more.

◾The sprouting depends on temperature like the current temperature in this part of the world is 33°C - 35°C and it takes 40-45 hours to get long and perfect sprouts.. 

◾Now in the same container in which mung beans were soaked and rinsed, along with beans, leave 1-2% water. Keep that container in dry and dark place and don't disturb that container. I never follow muslin cloth option as a steel container with fitted lid always works for me. Only thing, your container should be 40% filled with moong beans and 60% empty.
