as salads but as a shallow fried snack it will be a great kick factor for them with crisp bread crumb coating. For making sprouts follow these steps first wash and soak green gram in a vessel for 8 hours or over-night. Then in the morning strain it in a wet cloth and seal it tightly.Leave for 24 hours covering with a vessel upside down at room temperature.Then you will get sprouts, you can keep tied in the cloth for one more day for further more long sprouts. While making sprouts the cloth should be damp enough not too soggy as it will spoil the sprout if there is too much of water. Do try this awesome sprouted moong cutlet snack for sure.
