How to make Mixed Bean Sprouts at Home. There was a time I used to buy mixed bean sprouts or mung sprouts from outside.

And it used to happen, that the sprouts would spoil despite being in the fridge and its expiry date had also not elapsed. I deduced the reason for this occurrence must have got something to do with the water used for soaking the legumes.

Thus I decided to sprout the beans at home. Even today, I never buy sprouted beans from any grocery store and markets. One never know what kind of water is used. Is it clean or not? At least, in India one cannot be certain about these things.

Some days back, I had blogged about Sprouting mung beans at home. Sprouting mung beans is easy… Very easy and they sprout quickly too. The same thing cannot be said about other beans. Some beans like garbanzo beans, black chickpeas, green chickpeas, black eyed peas, green peas, black peas take a longer time to sprout.

I had taken equal mixtures of the above mentioned beans plus mung and moth beans. The mung beans and moth beans sprouted quickly but the for the other beans the sprouts were yet to be seen the next day. On the third day the sprouts were seen and some of them were pretty visible whereas a few of them were tiny. But nevertheless I cooked the beans on the third day.

You can make variety of dishes using sprouts like:

    1. Welcome Siddhu. It happens at time. Yes you can use them. Or you can keep them in the fridge for 1-2 days and the sprout will keep on growing.
