Where traditional Purim foods come from……

It is traditional to have a Purim Seudah (feast) on Purim day. And it is customary to serve food at the Purim meal that has symbolic meaning that links to the Purim story.

One custom is to serve an especially long, braided challah in memory of the rope used to hang Haman. Triangular-shaped food such as kreplach and hamantashen pastries are eaten in memory of Haman’s three-cornered hat.

It is written that King Ahasuerus reigned from India to Ethiopia. In Hebrew, the word Hodu means both India and turkey. Thus, some people eat turkey on Purim. Others eat Ethiopia dishes such as Ethiopian lentils.

Since Esther ate as a vegetarian in order to keep kosher in the King’s Palace, many people serve a vegetarian Purim meal.

Similarly, why is it customary to eat poppy seeds on Purim? Tradition says that Queen Esther ate only seeds and legumes when she moved into the King’s Palace in order to avoid eating non-kosher food.
