cholent -

Cholent (Yiddish: טשאָלנט, tsholnt or tshoolnt) or Hamin (Hebrew: חמין) is a traditional Jewish stew. The dish is usually boiled all night for 12 hours or more, and eaten during lunch on the Sabbath. Cholent developed throughout the centuries to conform to the Jewish laws that govern the way of cooking on the Sabbath.

There are several variations of the dish, which is standard in the Ashkenazi and Sefardim kitchens. The basic ingredients of cholent are meat, potatoes, beans and barley. Hamin style Sefardmin uses rice instead of nuts and barley.
