Everytime i visit to india i buy all the ingredients and sprout it and grind it in the mill and bring to US since I haven’t found any mill that can do this job until nutrimill sent it product for me to test it.I have tested more than 10 ingredients and result is amazing.I tried with dried ones,sprouted ones everything yielded a fine to coarse flour as i want.See the video below to see how it works.
Here are the few items i tested with nutrimill to get my utmost satisfaction before sharing it with my viewers.
- Wheat berries
- Rice- Basmati,sona masoori,brown
- Black eyed peas
- Chickpeas(Brown and white)
- Oats groats
- Corn – I find little hard to grind
- Ragi(Finger Millet)
Now let us see how to sprout using instantpot.Since this is specifically for my toddler i sprouted most of the ingredients.If you dont need it you can very well skip the sprouting process and go ahead with the grinding the ingredients one by one.If you are allergic to any ingredients you can skip that as well.The beauty of this recipe is you know what goes in.
Soak the ingredient you want to sprout for 8 hours.Drain the water completely.Fill the inner pot with 1 cup of water and fill the steamer basket with the one you want to sprout.Set 'yogurt' mode 8- 12 hrs depends on how big you want to be sprouted
