A unique dish with an excellent combination of sweet chestnut and salty sticky rice
This is a local food item of the Ena Region, using large-size chestnuts and sticky rice from Ena, seasoning it with salt, sugar and sake and steaming it to become fluffy and sticky. We dip chestnuts in salty water to remove bitterness before cooking. Natural sweetness produces unique taste together with the salty rice.
