The seeds are normally first soaked, before soaking, the seeds are rinsed to remove soil and dirt. The soaking increases the water content in the seeds and brings them out of quiescence. Then draining and then rinsing seeds at regular intervals until they germinate, or sprout. The growth process of any sprout can be slowed or halted by refrigerating until needed.
Common seeds for sprouting include alfalfa, fenugreek, lentils, peas, etc. 

The Mung beans have been sprouted in Asia for thousands of years.
