for sprouting – I use the strainer, white cotton cloth and a small basin. wash and soak the horsegram overnight. rinse it thoroughly and tie it in wet cotton cloth and keep it on the strainer over a small bowl. leave it undisturbed the whole day and you can see small sprouts by night. If you want lengthier ones, sprinkle water again and leave it overnight. keep open in sunlight for an hour before you cook to get the best out of the sprouts.
