I am making an Indian recipe (bisi bela) that calls for spouted mung beans. I started sprouting some dried beans a few days ago; they have already have a little root popping out, and have softened up quite a bit, but are definitely more bean than sprout. Should I use these in the recipe, or purchase the fully sprouted 2-3" beans from the store?
