2. Combine them with chopped tomato, coriander leaves, yoghurt, hing, sugar and salt. The original recipe calls for adding sauteed onion and green chillies to the raita, which I didnt do, as I wanted it to be free of oil.

How to grow sprouts?

 

Wash the whole green gram well and remove any discolored ones.  Soak them in water for around 12 – 15 hrs.  Drain the water and keep them covered in a container. They will sprout in 1-2 days. Rinse and drain them at least once a day to prevent them from drying out.
