Roasted chestnuts

Published originally in lareira.net by Marta on 25/12/2001

A recipe for chestnuts roasted in a pan over the induction cooker.

There are some special pans with holes but they are designed to roast the chestnuts in gas cookers. So the chestnuts can be in direct contact with the fire.

In this case they are not necessary because there is no fire and they are equally rich. The ideal would be to roast them in a bonfire, or fireplace if we make them inside the house.

But the best thing would be to have a cart with charcoal embers like the ones on the streets from October to December. Those are delicious.

Ingredients

Servings 4 serves


  • 400 g chestnut
