Take 100grams of sesame seeds (or Niger seeds – Guizotia abyssinica) in a small bowl. Add water to bowl, so that the seeds are submerged in water. Keep it aside for sprouting.
Next morning, take a big bowl and add
- 100 grams of Green gram or hesaru kaalu ( ಹೆಸರು ಕಾಳು)
- 100 grams of Cowpea or alasandi kaalu (ಹಲಸಂದೆ ಕಾಳು)
- 100 grams of Moth beans or madaki kaalu ( ಮಡಕಿ ಕಾಳು)
- 100 grams of Horse gram or huruli kaalu (ಹುರುಳಿ ಕಾಳು)
- 100 grams of Bengal gram or kadale kaalu (ಕಡಲೆ ಕಾಳು)
- 100 gram of Deshi Wheat or jave
Mix all the above 6 ingredients in a big bowl and add enough water, such that the seeds are submerged with. When all of the above 7 ingredients start to sprout, remove them from water and tie in a cotton porous cloth and hang the bundle to sprout.
Note: Do not throw the extra seed submerged water. Save it for later use.
When the sprouts are about 1 inch long, prepare the pulp of these seven types of germinated seeds. Grind with a stone, avoid using Mixer or Wet Grinder.
Add the ground pulp into 200 litres of water. To this, add the extra water, you had saved earlier. To this pulp water, add 10 litre desi gomutra (native cow urine). Stir it well in clockwise direction using a stick. Let the solution stand for 2 hours. Now filter it by cloth and spray to the standing crop of fruits (small pebble size) or vegetables (small pods or fruits) or grains (at milking stage)
This is a very effective tonic and growth promoter. You get a beautiful shine on the grains, fruits and vegetables. Quality of produce is enhanced and keeping quality is also increased.
