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 sprouts coming out.Once sprouted, they replace 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 many hassles.Enjoy !!

sprouted green gram 1 cup 
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 muslin cloth or cheese cloth, sprinkle few drops of water and place it in an airtight container or casserole for 24-48 hours.After 24 hours, sprouts appear on the grams. You may extend the keeping depending on the length of sprouts.

How to make salad-
When the sprout appears, wash under running water.
Take a bowl and transfer the sprouts. Put it in a microwave safe bowl and boil it on high for 4-5 mins with salt and a little water. Remove from microwave, add the chopped onion, tomato, cilantro and pepper powder.Squeeze lime juice, toss well. Salad is ready to serve.
