Moong daal sprouts with dry fruits and nuts

Moong beans, apart from being a good source of protein, also contain useful amounts of fibre, potassium, and B-vitamins. They contain low levels of fat, cholesterol and sodium.Sprouts contain an abundance of highly active anti-oxidants that prevent cell destruction and protect us from the ongoing effects of aging.

Moong daal sprouts - 1 cup
Chopped dates - 2 tbsp
Soaked almonds (Chopped) - 2 tbsp
Soaked Raisins - 1 tbsp

Moon daal sprouts, Almonds, Dates and Raisins

To make sprouts, Wash and soak the whole moong daal in water for about 6 hours. Drain the water and tie the moon daal in a muslin cloth and place it in a box for about 24 hours or until the sprouts are formed. You can directly place the soaked moong daal in the specially designed boxes with holes or simply in sprout makers.
Soak almonds and raisins also for at least 4-6 hours.

When the sprouts are ready, add the chopped almonds, dates and raisins.

This can be served as a cool snack during hot summer.
