Hy Friends, In this post, I am gonna share how to sprout moong dal at home. It is absolutely easier and better than getting readymade sprouts and you do not need a sprout maker. 
Moong beans sprout much faster as compared to other beans and are very healthy, nutritious and rich in protein, calcium, enzymes, vitamins and minerals. They are very easy to digest too. 
These sprouts can be eaten raw as a very refreshing salad or can be cooked into various delicious recipes.
