    my granddaughter has a cholent recipe with rice. The raw rice is place in an ovenproof plastic bag(the kind that you put a turkey in or smaller) with water duck sauce and oil. you seal it and place almost on the bottom of the slow cooker then add all other ingredients. The rice comes out delicious.

      To cook the raw rice in the plastic bag, which are the proportions of water and rice?

      • It should be same as usual – 1 cup rice to 2 cups water but depends a bit on which rice you use.
