    • I soak methi seeds overnight. Next day drain away all water and cover with damp cloth. Then for the next 3-4 days.rinse, drain and cover 3 times a day. Your sprouts should be ready by the end of the 4 th day.

  3. This is a great recipe. Tried it yesterday & loved it

  5. My methi sprouts got all Kadwaa… how do I get the taste right?

    • The longer you sprout them, the less bitter they will be! Toss them in salt n lemon juice, that reduces the taste of bitterness too!
