For the sprouted mixture

    For the sprouted mixture
  1. Soak the whole moong, whole wheat and whole ragi in enough water in separate containers for 6 to 8 hours.
  2. Drain out all the water, tie them in separate muslin cloths and allow them to sprout. This may take upto 2 days in warm weather. Remember to keep sprinkling water on the musllin cloth to keep it damp, as the grains will not sprout if they are dry.
  3. Heat a non-stick tava (griddle) and dry-roast all the whole grains separately on slow flame for 15 to 20 minutes or till they turn crisp, while stirring continuously.
  4. Cool for 5 minutes and combine all the toasted grains in a deep bowl. Rub them between your palms to remove all the burnt skin and sprouts which will otherwise leave a burnt taste in the mixture.
  5. Separate this burnt portion from the toasted grains by passing it through a sieve. Discard the burnt portion.
  6. Blend the toasted grains in a mixer to a fine powder.
  7. Cool and store in a sterilised air-tight container. Use as required.
