Instructions
 

Green Lentil Sprouts

  • Put rinsed lentils in the mason jar and add water to it. Don't close the lid, instead cover with a muslin cloth or mesh lid. Don't overfill as lentils will triple in size, best to leave some space. Let it rest for 24 hours at least, when lentils size increases, strain the water out.
  • Rinse the lentils in the colander and leave it for another 24- 36 hours, When roots start to shoot and are of the proper size, then you can transfer them in an airtight container and store in a refrigerator.
    INSTANT POT: Rinse the lentils in the colander and transfer in the steamer basket. Transfer it in the inner pot of Instant Pot. Cover it with a plate or a glass lid. Press the Yogurt button and set the timer for 10- 12 hours. After 12 hours when roots are grown up, transfer in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator.

  • STOVETOP: Add lentils in the stovetop pressure cooker. Add turmeric powder and cover lentils with water in the cooker. Close lid and pressure cook till 1 whistle. When pressure is released, open the lid and strain liquid, transfer lentils in a bowl.
    INSTANT POT: Add lentils in the inner pot of Instant Pot and cover lentils with water. Add turmeric powder and close lid. With vent in the sealing position, pressure cook for 2 minutes. NPR (No Pressure Release) for 10 minutes and then Quick Release. When the valve goes down and it's safe, then open the lid. Strain the liquid and transfer lentils in a bowl.
  • Add onions, tomatoes, garam masala powder, red chili powder, salt, mango powder, cumin powder, lemon juice, chaat masala, and cilantro in the bowl with green lentils and mix. Serve it hot or cold and enjoy!

Notes

Before sprouting, it's best to let the lentils triple in size. That way the sprouts will grow way quicker.
If you're going to use the instant pot for sprouting, then usually it takes 24 hours for roots to grow properly.
Do not close the lid of Instant Pot, always close with a plate or a glass lid. Otherwise it will slow the process.
You can put lentils in mason jar or in a big container  like a mixing bowl to double the lentils size.
I prefer boiling the sprouts with turmeric, this always give a Street-Style taste of chaat. But if not, you can also use them raw and add other ingredients as mentioned in the recipe.
