Chestnuts they are a-roasting
C is for Chestnuts.
You can tell chestnuts are in season when the aroma of chestnuts being roasted is in the air.
One might mistake it for coffee even but then again, one is not wrong. Chestnuts here sold by street vendors are roasted with coffee beans and butter. More accurately, they are roasted in a pan/pot like this.
Some vendors still do manual frying the chestnuts in a large wok with coffee beans and butter being the main ingredients that make these chestnuts so attractive to the senses.
The next time you are here in Malaysia, watch out for these. Don't leave Malaysia without tasting our roasted chestnuts. You can find them in market squares. Chinatown in Kuala Lumpur would be a good start to look.
