HOW TO ROAST SWEET LITTLE CHESNUT ???

HOW TO ROAST SWEET LITTLE CHESNUT ???

Chestnut is an ultimate healthy gourmet food.  It is low in fat, high in fiber and also gluten free.  Its taste and texture is anywhere between sweet peanuts and Jackfruit seed.  We were very much used in eating these sweet little chestnuts in Singapore; we love this  a lot and use to munch at least once in week.  I miss Singapore for lots of reason and this is one of those :) In Singapore the street hawker use to roast the chestnut in a huge wok filled along with tiny pebbles (black stones) in a very huge flame in front of the MRT entrance. It will be warm and fresh, which tastes so good to eat as well.   If you go to food court in the malls, the chestnut vendor packs them in a beautiful brown bag and he gives a small tool (thumb size plastic tool with tiny teeth) which is used to open the chestnut very easily.  How cool :)  Even now we are not missing chestnuts, because I am roast ing them at home and enjoy munching them remembering those beautiful days.  I love desserts made of chestnuts and chestnut cream is so yummy :)
