All About Sprouts - முளை கட்டிய பயறு

What are Sprouts? முளை கட்டிய பயறு என்றால் என்ன?
Sprouting is the practice of soaking, draining and then rinsing seeds at regular intervals until they germinate, or sprout.
Moisture, warmth, and in most cases, indirect sunlight are necessary for sprouting. Some sprouts, such as moong whole (பச்சைப்பயறு), can be grown in the dark. Little time, effort or space is needed to make sprouts.

How To make Sprouts? எப்படி பண்ணுவது?
To sprout seeds, the seeds are moistened, then left at room temperature in a vessel. Many different types of vessels can be used. One type is a simple glass jar with a piece of cloth secured over its rim.  Any vessel used for sprouting must allow water to drain from it, because sprouts that sit in water will rot quickly. The seeds will swell and begin germinating within a day or two.

Sprouts are rinsed as little as twice a day, but possibly three or four times a day in hotter climates, to prevent them from souring. Each seed has its own ideal sprouting time. Depending on which seed is used, after three to five days they will have grown to two or three inches in length and will be suitable for consumption. If left longer they will begin to develop leaves, and are then known as baby greens.

The amazing power of Sprouts
Ever wondered why sprouted seeds, despite being "the perfect food known to man", remain much of an enigma as far as their benefits are concerned?? Well, because they are so completely natural, require no processing and so easy on the pocket that then true value is not realized.

Seeds are life just waiting to be born. Sprouts are an "explosion of life". Sprouted seeds are a staple diet of several oriental civilizations and are well known for their powerful nutritive and healing properties.


 A Nutritive Powerhouse
Sprouts bear the largest relative amount of nutrients per unit of intake of any food known to man. They have enough first - quality proteins to be classified as "complete". Many sprouted seeds such as those of moong whole (பச்சைப் பயறு) and கொத்துக்கடலை contain all the essential amino acids in their "free" state, which means that more nutrients reach the cells with less food.

 Sprouting increases the vitamin content of a seed dramatically. The vitamin C value of wheat increases 600% in the early sprouting period. Sprouts contain more vitamin C than oranges. In a discovery, the vitamin laetrile, known for its success in cancer therapy was found to increase over a 1000% in the sprouted seed.

Enzymes, considered the key to longevity are greatly activated in the sprouting process. The absence of enzymes produces that "tired, run down feeling".

Sprouts are the best "living food". In fact, they are so alive that they are still growing when you eat them.

Sprouts - A boon to mankind.
More importantly, sprouts are totally chemical-free, leave no waste, are delicious when raw and are super low in calories. They are by far the best food for us. Try them!! Sprouts have been known to turn even the most cynical of men around.

எந்தெந்த பயறுகளை முளை கட்டலாம்?

பச்சைப் பயறு, கொத்துக்கடலை, சுண்டல் பட்டாணி etc.

பச்சைப்பயற்றை 100 கிராம் தண்ணீரில் 9-10 மணி நேரம் ஊறவைக்கவும்.

பின்னர், தண்ணீரை இறுத்து விட்டு, ஒரு பாத்திரத்தில் போட்டு மூடி வைக்கவும்.

பச்சைப்பயறு 7-8 மணி நேரத்தில் முளை கட்டிவிடும். மற்ற பயறுகள் இன்னும் அதிக நேரம் எடுத்துக் கொள்ளும்.

இடை இடையில் தண்ணீர் தெளிக்கவும்.

முளை வந்ததும் உபயோகிக்கலாம்.

பச்சையாக (raw)  ஸாலட் மாதிரியும் சாப்பிடலாம், அல்லது சமைத்தும் சாப்பிடலாம்.
