Nutritious Mixed Sprouts and Barley Powder

  • Dried Chick pea (Black) – 1 Table spoon
  • Dried Chick pea (White) – 1 Table spoon
  • Dried Green pea – 1 Table spoon
  • Dried Horse gram – 1 Table spoon
  • Dried Green gram – 1 Table spoon
  • Dried Red gram – 1 Table spoon
  • Dried Black eyed pea – 1 Table spoon
  • Dried Pearl millet – 1 Table spoon
  • Dried Finger millet – 1 Table spoon
  • Sorghum – 1 Table spoon
  • Pearl Barley – 1 Table spoon
  • Almond – 1 Table spoon
  • Cashew – 1 Table spoon
  • Cardamom – 3 nos
  • Wheat flour with germ - 1 Table spoon
  • Soak chick peas, green peas, horse gram, green gram, red gram, black eyed peas and millets in water for 8 to 12 hours, drain soaked water, wash with fresh water and cover them with wet cloth. In between rinse them with fresh water twice a day. In 24 hours they start sprouting. In the second day the sprouts will be ready to use, so carefully wash the sprouts with fresh water by not breaking the tiny sprouts. Drain excess water and spread them in a clean plate and dry.
  • In between soak sorghum and pearl barley together for about 4 to 5 hours, drain soaked water, wash with fresh water and dry.
  • Dry roast mixed sprouts, sorghum, wheat flour with germ and barley together and keep aside.
  • Dry roast almond, cashew and cardamom seeds together.
  • Care should be taken while roasting because high heat may burn the grains and spoil the aroma.
  • Grind the above roasted items into a fine powder.
  • This nutritious powder can be either used with hot milk or water as a healthy drink.
  • We can also add sugar for taste.

  33. Hello There,

    I wish to see more healthy recopies on your blog. Our aging population has high BP, Sugar and Cholesterol problems.

    We need more creative ways to encourage them to eat healthy.

    I welcome novel ways of cooking:
    1. Bitter gourd,
    2. Sprouted Legumes
    3. Pearl Millet
    4. Horsegram
    5. Finger Millets

    These are slow digesting - particularly good for sugar patients.

    Please keep up your good work.

    Best Regards !

  34. krishna what a nice and healthy powder,but my question is how you dried all these sprouts?in USA and Canada Sun light is very rare right.Please give me some ideas,how you dried this health powder
