You can make sprouts from moong dal, black chickpeas, green peas, or from any dal or millet variety.
Today I am making pearl millet or kambu sprouts salad. So how to prepare pearl millet sprouts? It’s so simple, the very first thing you have to do is cleaning the pearl millet by rinsing it under water.
You have to repeat the same process many times until all the dust particles are neatly removed.
After washing, soak the pearl millet for 8 to 10 hours in enough water. Then drain all the water thoroughly, place the pearl millet in an airtight container or you can even use a neat cloth to tie the pearl millet inside it.
Leave it for 1 or 2 days. Then you will find small tails in your millet. Oh yes! Success, you did it.
