Fresh sprouts off the bowl

Sprouting augments the grains’ benefits, thus numerous essential nutrients such as folate, phosphorous, magnesium, and vitamin C &K to your diet. The natural germinating process is also known to up its protein content. Soak moong dal, chana dal, millet, barley, kala chana, or anything you want overnight and you are good to go the next day.
Soaking it up
Rinse your choice of grains/legumes/beans. Then place them in a bowl filled with water. Ensure that the bowl is large enough for the sprouts to swell once they germinate. Similarly, ensure that there is more than enough water as the grains absorb some water while sprouting.
The next day they would have germinated with young shoots blossoming. Throw away any skin or debris. If you want to germinate them more then wrap them in a muslin cloth for a day. With a nutty, alluring aroma these sprouts taste nice and different.
Germination is also the process of fermentation. It makes sprouts rich in bioflavonoids, antioxidants, and phytochemicals.
Add it to your daily meals.
