Sprouts have become a part of my life now, as I follow a high protein diet. We all know the benefits of sprouts and they are great for babies too. Sprouts are high is protein and it removes the gassiness from the beans and lentils. Sprouting is a tedious process and I’m generally very lazy to follow up.
My aunt gave me this partitioned sprouter and its been so useful. Although the instructions say that we need to soak the grams overnight and then place in the sprouter. I soak them in the sprouter itself (Use the 2nd and last partition for soak, later move the sprouts from the last bowl to the top). If the water goes down I add more overtime. But in 24 hours you have lovely sprouts, the picture just shows the sprouts halfway, I had better ones later.
For Baby Cereal Powders
You can sprout wheat, moong dal, ragi, bajra and all types of grains. Dry in the sun, later roast it on low flame and powder. Finally sieve the powder. This will make an ideal cereal mix for your babies. You can add water or milk and prepare a porridge with sugar or salt.
For weight-watching mommies its a great filler and perfect for weightloss. I checked the market price which is around Rs 400. Do purchase one if you prepare sprouted food often.
