Mishnah Pesachim 10:3 says:

מְטַבֵּל בַּחֲזֶרֶת, עַד שֶׁמַּגִּיעַ לְפַרְפֶּרֶת הַפַּת

[he] dips the lettuce until he reaches parperet hapat

What exactly does parperet hapat mean in this context? Various commentators seem to agree that it's a part of the seder, but they disagree on which part.

    Are you specifically interested only in what part of the Seder is being referenced? The term is a general term used elsewhere as well (eg. Mishna Berakhot 6:5)

    What’s wrong with the commentaries you’ve seen that you seek an answer here?

  • Rashi/Tosafot: Eating Maror. Bartenura: Eating matza. Tiferet Yisrael: Yachatz (Is that what you're looking for? If so I can write up as answer...)
