How to Sprout Ragi

Sprouting ragi, also known as finger millet, is a simple process that involves soaking the grains and allowing them to germinate. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to sprout ragi:

  1. Select high-quality ragi grains by Dinesh Flour Mills: They are free from stones or debris.

  2. Rinse the ragi grains: Thoroughly rinse the ragi grains under running water to remove any dust or impurities.

  3. Soak the ragi grains: Place the rinsed ragi grains in a bowl or container and cover them with enough water. Allow them to soak overnight or for at least 8 to 12 hours.

  4. Drain the water: After the soaking period, pour out the water by using a strainer or colander. Rinse the ragi grains once again with fresh water.

  5. Germination stage: Spread the soaked ragi grains evenly on a damp muslin cloth or a sprouting tray. Ensure that the cloth or tray is moist but not dripping wet. Place the cloth or tray in a warm, dark place, such as a cupboard or a corner of your kitchen.

  6. Rinse and drain: Twice a day, rinse the ragi grains with water and drain out the excess. This helps maintain moisture levels and prevents the grains from drying out. Make sure to gently shake the cloth or tray to spread out the grains evenly after each rinse.

  7. Continue the process: Repeat the rinsing and draining process for the next 2 to 3 days. You will start to see small sprouts emerging from the ragi grains within 24 to 48 hours. The sprouting time may vary based on the temperature and humidity levels in your environment.

  8. Harvest the sprouts: Once the ragi grains have sprouted to your desired length (usually 1/4 to 1/2 inch), they are ready to be consumed. Harvest the sprouts by gently removing them from the cloth or tray. Rinse them once again with clean water before using.

  9. Store the sprouts: If you have excess sprouts, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They can stay fresh for up to 2 to 3 days.

Sprouted ragi can be consumed raw in salads, smoothies, or added to various dishes like porridge, dosa, or idli. Enjoy the nutritious and flavorful sprouted ragi in your meals!
