The same increase happens with other seeds and grains like mung beans, lentils, fenugreek and other beans. These seeds can be germinated anywhere in your kitchen. Take required seeds in a jar cover it with lukewarm water and leave it overnight and in the morning take out and wash thoroughly and place it in a muslin or cheese cloth and remove the water then place it in a jar and again in the evening take out  wash it with fresh lukewarm water, repeat the rinsing twice a day and in three to four days(depends of the seed you uses) it will be ready to use. this can be used with yogurt and in salads, also can be used with omelets.  Grow every time a different one in the jars.  

Seeds like alfalfa, wheat, moong beans, lentils, seame seds, chik peas, fenugreek can be sprouted in this way and can use.
