Hi, Indira. I am so happy to have some chestnuts left to roast on a cold day as it is in NY now! And to see chestnuts here, too ; - ) The ones I have I bought at TJs, they're from Italy. I use a stove top "oven", sometimes called a "potato baker." I 've soaked them in water for a while, made the criss- crosses, then wrapped a handful of chestnuts in tin foil before putting them in the foil in the stove top "baker." A cast iron pot, like what you've shown, is probably preferable. So for now this is what I'm using.

It is available in Kashmir market during early fall season.Local name Panjaeeb Gariee is delicious after baking but occurrence of Kernel rot makes it bitter to taste.

I tried this today and we all loved it, especially me. Growing up my favorite snack was roasted jack fruit seed and I have been missing it since I moved to the US. So I was surprised to see that these roasted chestnuts tasted very much like roasted jack fruit seeds. Thanks for posting this recipe Indira.

Did anyone notice the absolute similarity in taste between chestnut and jack fruit seed (palakkottai in Tamil)? When I first tried the roasted chestnut, I said this is definitely something I know. After a few times it just came alive to me. It could pass for palakkottai

Hi all I was wondering how you can tell if the chesnuts are good. I was really excited to try to roast some chestnuts but unfortunately they turned out to have grey, fuzzy stuffon them once i opened the shell. Is there any way to tell if they are bad before you open them?

Indira, I recently got a iron panniyaram pan. I don't know how to season it so it becomes like a nonstick pan. Do u have any ideas and tips? Also, I don't have an iron skillet to roast the chestnuts in...can it be baked? Shobana, for first few tries, brush the cooking surface with liberal amounts of oil. or butter or shortening. This helps to season the pan. I never did but I think you can bake chestnuts. During cooking process the steam builds up inside the shell and they jump and make noise like diwali crackers. so it is very important to make a cut in them baking or stove-top roasting. Hope this helps. - Indira
