Easy! Chestnut Rice

Easy! Chestnut Rice

I cut down on the salt so that the rice is lightly seasoned.

Ingredients: 2 rice cooker cups' worth (360ml)

Chestnuts (large)
20
White rice
2 rice cooker cups' worth (360ml)
Cooking sake
2 tablespoons
Mirin
1 tablespoon
Salt
1/2 teaspoon plus

Steps

1. Soak the chestnuts in hot water for an hour.
2. Remove from the hot water, peel the shells and inner layers, and soak in water in the order peeled (until you've peeled them all.)
3. Put the washed rice, sake, mirin, and salt into the rice cooker. Add water up to the white rice 2 cup line and give a light stir.
4. Scatter the chestnuts on top of everything and leave to soak for 30 minutes. Then switch the cooker on as usual.
5. When it's done, mix, and serve! Avoid crushing the chestnuts when you mix!
