    Mung beans

    Mung beans are small green beans, native to the Indian subcontinent. They're delicious sprouted, as in this salad recipe. To sprout the beans, rinse the beans well till the water runs clear. Place in a bowl, cover generously with water, and let sit overnight. The next day, drain the beans and give them a good rinse. Line a colander or sieve with a clean tea towel; place the beans inside and lightly cover (a bamboo steamer also works well for this). Keep in a cool, dark place out of direct sunlight for 1 to 3 days, until sprouts form. Rinse and drain every 12 hours.

    If the Mung beans are kept covered for 2 to 5 days, the sprouts may be too long. Well, in a tropical country like India, 24 hours should be enough for healthy sprouts! - 31 Aug 2012
