Moong Sprouts or Green Gram Sprouts

I had a couple of requests on how to make sprouts, so here goes. This post deals with how to get moong (green gram, pesalu) to sprout but applies equally to matki, chana, etc.

  1. Moong, Pesalu, or Green Gram – 1 Cup
  2. Water – 4 Cups


  • Casserole


  1. Soak the moong in water for at least 6 hours.
  2. Drain the water completely from the moong.
  3. Put the soaked moong in a casserole and close the lid.
  4. Set aside for at least 8 hours.
  5. Sprouts Ready for use.


  • You could also drain the water using a colander, leave the moong in the colander, cover the moong, and keep the colander in a warm nook.
  • Another ways to tie up the soaked, drained moong in a cotton cloth and set aside for about 8 hours.
