Tutorial for growing Beansprout

Wash mung beans thoroughly with clean water and let it soak overnight

The next morning,
skin cracked open and gases released.
Wash and rinse thoroughly to remove the odour.

You need a good container.
Any container which can block-out light.

I chose my stainless teapot with a spout, 
easy to drain off excess water. 

Make a stopper at the spout to ensure total darkness.
Also to prevent creepy crawlies from entering.
I cut up a piece of the kitchen towel into half and fold it into a triangle
before screwing it tightly into the spout.

Take another piece of kitchen towel and lined the teapot. 
Place the bean inside.
Pour water just enough to cover the beans.

Then take another kitchen towel to cover the beans.
Cover the teapot with its lid
let the show begins.. 

The next morning...
Check out the sprout!
Sprinkle water on the beans 
Close the teapot.

Repeat sprinkling of the beans every 6 hours or so.
Do this for the next 3 days.

Beans sprouted nicely and ready to harvest!

Wash thoroughly and drain.

Beansprout all cleaned up and ready to cook!

It was fun experimenting this.
Tastes excellent too :)

Do give it a try..
Good luck :)
