Japanese pumpkin recipes

Also known as kabocha, this Japanese variety of squash resembles the Turban squash but is more petite. It has a dark-green skin with lighter green or white stripes. The bright-orange flesh is fluffier than other varieties, with a texture and taste almost like cooked chestnuts. Kabocha is popular eaten as tempura, or braised.
