Kurigohan is a traditional Japanese fall recipe based mainly on chestnuts and rice. Starchy, sweet, rich in flavor, chestnuts are a very popular cool-season edible nut, and unlike other nuts, chestnuts are low in calories and fats, but rich in minerals, vitamins, phytonutrients, and fiber.
Steaming the chestnuts with the rice brings out the natural sweetness of the nut, making this dish a perfect expression of the season.
