Sweet Potato Rice

There is this amazing Japanese Fall dish called Kuri Gohan.
It's very simple recipe where you use chestnuts and steam them with rice in the rice cooker. But the problem is, chestnut is huge manual labor where you have to soak the nuts for few days until they're soft for you to slice off the skin with a knife.

SO for alternative, try using Japanese sweet potatoes!
It definitely doesn't do justice as Kuri Gohan but it still has nice cozy, sweet and soft texture as chestnuts. I'm also addicted with sprinkleing black sesame seed on top to give that roasted flavor. When it's up to me with my rice bowl, I cover the entire bowl with black sesame seeds!

This recipe is so stupidly easy I make them at least once a week in large batch!
