Introduction

I do not use potatoes in my cholent - the classic recipe omits the carrots & uses potatoes instead. I prefer it this way AND it is much healthier! I do not use potatoes in my cholent - the classic recipe omits the carrots & uses potatoes instead. I prefer it this way AND it is much healthier!
