Amalek Kugel for parshas Zachor

Amalek’s Kugel is an acronym for four kugels which together form the word Amalek.

A for apple or epel (the ayin)

M for flour, or mehl (the mem)

L for lukshen or noodles (the lamed)

K for kartofel(potatoes) the kuf.

In Europe and in other places Chassidim serve these four kugels on the Shabbos when Parshas Zachor is read and then they eat them thereby symbolically annihilating Amalek by eating him all up.
