  1. Wow, Indira, sprouts look the best on your site and simply feel like eating them more often!

  3. Very simple things look gorgeous when you capture them in your camera :) Love to see how that chick pea colour complements well with the sack cloth which again gels with the background…it’s a melody…

  4. These look lovely Indira! Inspired by your sprouts posts, I tried sprouting pinto beans last weekend…maybe it was the wet weather, or the fact that the beans were very old…no sprouts and major stink in the kitchen :( (I used the technique I usually use with great results for moong sprouts…similar to yours)
    Any more ideas on why it failed? Would appreciate any pointers…

  5. Dee, Poonam and Mishmash: Thanks.

    AA: Sorry to hear about the failed attempt. Like pets, they neuter the beans here with several layers of anti fungal etc types of chemical treatment. Perhaps that may be the reason?

  6. hmm…i never thought about that…thanks! These were conventional supermarket beans, so it could well be the case… (glad i didnt eat them)

  7. Try this. It is what I do.
    Soak beans for 8 hours in an aluminium/plastic container without washing them. Then wash them well before they start to sprout. Cover for another eight hours with any lid (aluminium/glass)in the same vessel. See great results after that. Usually I start two days before I actually require them.

    I tried your eggplant chole recipe (which became a regular in my kitchen by the way) with sprouted channa. Don’t know how much sprouts nutrition will be left after so much cooking, but tasted good :-)
