How to sprout beans in a bowl or large container. This is particularly useful for sprouting a big batch of moong.

1. Firstly, measure out the amount of whole mung beans you want to sprout on a plate. Pick and clean the beans to remove any stones or husks. Place the beans in a mesh strainer or colander

2. Rinse the beans thoroughly in clean water for 3 to 4 times.

3. Soak Beans to a clean bowl.

4. Add filtered water or water that has been boiled and cooled. Ensure that the water is at least 2 to 3 inches above the moong beans. 

5. Now cover the bowl with a lid and soak the beans overnight or for 8 hours at room temperature.

6. Check the moong beans the next day to see that they’ve swollen. Drain the water either from the bowl or by using a colander to strain.

7. Thoroughly rinse the beans with clean filtered water, or water that has been boiled and cooled. This step is essential to avoid the risk of contaminating the sprouts.

8. Place the soaked beans back into a new clean bowl.

9. Cover with a lid (which is not too tight or air-tight) at room temperature for 1 to 2 days in a dark place.

10. Check after a day or so and you should notice little sprouts start to form. After the full 2 days you will have lovely, healthy and hearty moong sprouts ready to use!

Depending on the weather, temperature conditions and the quality of mung beans, the sprouting may happen in a day or may take more time. For long tender sprouts, keep for 2 to 3 days.

While the beans are sprouting, do not touch them with your hands or with any spoon or fork to avoid contamination.
