Soak the mung beans in 1 cup filtered water overnight. Spread a clean, damp cloth in a large bowl. Drain the water from the beans and spread them on the cloth. Fold the corners of the cloth over the beans to cover them. Place the bowl in a cool place away from sunlight. Dampen the cloth every 6 hours. The beans will sprout to about ½-centimeter sprouts in 12 hours.

Once the beans have sprouted, rinse them thoroughly in clean water. Boil the sprouts in 2 cups of water with the turmeric and salt for 10 minutes, or until the sprouts soften a little. Drain the sprouts and set them aside.
