Aadi Perukku / Aadi 18 Recipes

Aadi Perukku / Aadi 18 is a Tamil festival celebrated on the 18th day of the Tamil month Aadi (July mid to Aug mid). Usually it comes on Aug 2nd or Aug 3rd of every year. The Adiperukku, as a water-ritual, celebrated by women is to honor nature. It is celebrated near river basins, when the level of water rises because of Monsoon. On this day, we will prepare different rice varieties and worship Goddess Parvati. I am happy to share our Aadi 18 special recipes.
