1Soak the pulses in water overnight so that they swell. Rinse them thoroughly, then dry them on a piece of kitchen towel.
2Put the pulses in a clean, dry jar, making sure that they cover only the bottom. Rest the lid on top of the jar and leave it in a bright spot, away from direct sunlight. They should start to sprout within 24 hours.
3Rinse the pulses a couple of times a day, pat them dry and return them to the jar. They should be ready to eat within three to four days.

I like this idea, I have a 2 year old son who loves gardening but it would be nice for him to see things happening quickly

Read somewhere putting a little pressure on the sprouting seed, on the surface, benefits or encourages longer shoots. Advice came from someone in china, I think.
