To grow sprouts


Wash the seeds well and remove any discolored ones.  Soak them in water for around 12 – 15 hrs.  Drain the water and keep them covered in a jar. They will sprout in 1-2 days. Rinse and drain them at least once a day to prevent them from drying out.  The sprouting process takes more time during winter season than summer season.
