      Hi! You can typically find mung dal at your local Indian store since you can’t buy the sprouts directly. You should soak the daal in water overnight and then drain the water and put them in airtight container for 7-8 hours. When you open it, make sure to sprinkle some water as it takes 12 hours for them to fully grow. Hope this helps!
