What is the ratio of mung beans to the sprouts produced from it?
For example, what is the quantity of sprouts that 1 cup of mung beans will generate?
Dido, 1 cup of moong will make about 2-1/2 cups of sproutes
Majula Ji, this is a very nice recipe. Thank you for sharing.
I have a question, can we use curd in place of yogurt, because yogurt is difficult to get from a local grocery shop.
Taruna, yogurt and curd is same.

best of salad
Nice nutritious salad.
I have a suggestion : instead of boiling the sprouts in water you can steam the sprouted moong dal in a colander and half cover it with other vessel. It will be more nutritious it will take hardly 3-5minutes only. Its healthy to cook all the vegetables [dont cover it completely leave little place for the steam to escape this will retain the colour of vegetables] in this way or pressure cook, best ways of cooking to retain the maximum nutrition of the vegetables.
Your recipes are very easy to follow and tasty too. Thank you.
we all are found of sprouted moong dal, moth dal and black gram. unfortunately we cant prepare the sprouted as good as they are available in the market. The length of sprouts are not so long. please guide and suggest me. Thanks
Sprouts are good source of proteins and fiber…Now my question is “Will cooking retain the nutrition qualities of sprouts as such or they will lost in cooking”
hi manju aunty….
i hv tried many of your recipes and they hv turned out well. when i made moong sprouts for the salad, they tasted a bit bitter after i steam cooked them. pls suggest a method to avoid this happening. thanks a ton……
Bean sprouts do not have a lot of fiber in them. There are only .8 (point eight) grams – less than 1 gram per serving.
Please see the following to verify this.
How do you make or where do you buy ginger juice?
Making ginger juice is easy shred the ginger very fine or I use zester to great the ginger after grating hold the paste between you fingers and squeeze, you will be surprise how easy it is.
Please suggest can we use any other fruit if we don’t have oranges..
Use chopped apple I like if apples are sour.

Hi what is the difference between table spoon and tea spoon.Please reply thanks
These are US cooking measurements. You need to have measuring spoons.
1 teaspoon = 1/3 of a tablespoon – or – 3 teaspoons = 1 tablespoon.
You can also Google cooking measurements for more details.
Thanks for the recipe.

Can I skip “Olive Oil”? becoze, i don’t like the raw test any kind of oil, it does not test well, & i have not tried olive oil in any kind of cooking, so i don’t know the test of olive oil, i usually use “Refined Oil”.

Try without oil.
