Bean Sprouts

Recipe By : Niru Gupta
Type: Condiments


  • Lentils/dals to be sprouted
  • Thin muslin cloth
  • Jar
  • OR Sprout Maker


  • Clean and wash the grains to be sprouted, and soak in water coming up to at least 1 ½cm/1” above them, for about 4 hours in Summer and 7-8 hours in Winter.
  • Drain the water away and transfer the grains into a wide mouthed jar. Tie a piece of muslin over the mouth of the jar.

  • Place the jar at an angle, mouth side down, in a wide container (idea being that no water stands at the bottom).

  • Three times a day, pour water into the jar, drain out and keep at an angle again. Repeat this till sprouts are of desired length.

  • Alternatively, tie drained grains in a piece of muslin, and leave to drain at a convenient spot. Pour some water over this about three times a day, till the sprouts are of the desired size.

  • Another method, is to use gadgets available for the purpose, following their instructions!
