Sprouted Green Gram Salad | How to make sprouts at home??

Sprouted grains are highly nutritious,but it requires more time to get it prepared.Soaking time increases and you require a lot of patience to watch out the sprout coming out.Once sprouted,they are actually replacing all animal foods in case of proteins and other minerals.This was by chance I thought to bring out some healthy recipe with sprouted grams,so that kids could also enjoy eating without much hassles.

sprouted green gram 1cup 
tomato 1chopped
Onion 1 chopped
cilantro 1 chopped
pepper powder 1tsp
lime juice 1-2 tsp

How to make sprouts-
Soak the grams in water for 6-8 hrs in water till the level of grams.Then remove from water and tie the grams in a msulin cloth or cheese cloth,sprinkle few drops of water and place it in an air tight container or casserole for 6 hours.After 6 hours,sprouts appear on the grams.

How to make salad-
When the sprout appears,put it in a microwave safe bowl and boil it on high for 4-5 mins with salt and water.Add the chopped onion ,tomato,cilantro and pepper powder.Squeeze lime juice,toss well.
