How to grow microgreens?

Sprinkle moongh dal ( use any bean you like) evenly on top of the soil,cover it with a thin layer of soil.Hard beans need to be soaked in water overnight and then sowed in soil.I usually keep these pots on my kitchen window where there is some sunlight.
Sprinkle/spray water everyday till the micro greens are grown till 2 inches-depending upon the variety you use.Cut about halfway above the stem discard the roots.Wash with filtered water and use.
