Sprouted and Boiled Moong
Sprouting is a wonderful way to enhance the nutritional benefits of beans like moong, and it also adds to the flavour with a mild sweetness and pleasurable crunch. Here we show you how to make perfect Sprouted and Boiled Moong. This is not only a convenient way but also a healthy method, because we cook it in just the required amount of water, to avoid nutrient loss. You can add the sprouted moong to a salad, or toss it with some salt and chilli powder to enjoy it as a snack. You can also cook it further and use it to make healthy recipes like subzis and parathas.
