How to Grow Pearl Millet Sprouts
  1. Soak the millet for first 15 minutes then remove stones.
  2. Rinse thrice and add fresh water, later soak 8 hours or overnight.
  3. Once millet is soaked up drain excess water from it.
  4. Now pat dry over a cotton cloth or paper towel for 30 minutes at least.
  5. The above step is very important in sprout making process.
  6. Spread the pat dried seeds over strainer/sieve (something with holes, we say jalladai in tamil) and place it inside casserole or hot pack/hot box.
  7. If not you can tie in a light wet cloth by piercing some hole all over it or muslin cloth.
  8. Leave it as it is in a dark warm room for 6- 8 hours, after 6 hours you can see tiny sprouts.
  9. I sprinkle or rinse seeds twice in a day and drain the excess water staying inside the pan.
  10. It depends on the temperature the sprouts grow, once you see drained grains or outside of cloth dried out just sprinkle some water.
  11. In 3rd or 4th day from the day of soak you see very good sprouts and can extend another one day.
  12. Once done use it immediately , keeping that in mind I always make limited quantity.
  13. I never freeze sprouts, plan and make needed quantity and can store in zip lock sealed pack in the refrigerator for 2 days.
