Mixed sprouts … a tangy evening snack can be prepared in a snap and one of the healthiest snack for any unplanned small get together party if you have germinated sprouts before.
So you just need to cut the vegetables and squeezing lemon that’s all !!
Sprouts are rich in nutrients and antioxidants , eating them can improve your digestion and blood sugar levels .I have used one of the popular legume that is green sprouts which can be germinated at home.You need to clean and soak the whole green grams in enough water then discard water and hang in muslin cloth at least one day to grow sprouts.
Another legume i have used is black gram chick peas or kala chana sprouts which take little more time to germinate than whole green grams with same process to grow sprouts.Black chick peas are power house of immunity booster and help reducing cholesterol.
There are various culinary use of sprouts but cooking sprouts will lose the nutritional values of nature’s one of the most gifted food.So eating a handful of raw sprouts in the morning is much better than cooked and it will keep you energetic all day.
There must be a food cart of sprouts in any fairs or events organised in most of the paces in India where they served sprouts in a leaf bowl.
