This week, the week after Passover we start with a Schlisel challah, that is a challah shaped like a key or a challah with a hidden key baked inside. It is based on an old Chassidic custom said to bring good financial blessings.  

Stills' Key Shaped Challah to symbolize good fortune in the year to come, traditionally made the Shabbat after Passover.

Now, that we have our challah, let's try an easy Asian menu so that you don't have to work so hard this week, we just finished the biggest cooking holiday of the year, we all need a break.
