Thiruvathirai Kali

Thiruvathirai Kali is made on Thiruvathirai, a hindu festival celebrated in Kerala and tamilnadu in the month of Dhanu or Margazhi( mid Dec- mid June). Aardhra dharisanam in Tamilnadu corresponds with thiruvathirai in Kerala. Both are related to Lord Shiva. On this day we make thiruvathirai Kali and a side dish for it. The sweet is made with raw rice, coconut and jaggery.

Thiruvathirai

Thiruvadirai or Arudra Darisanam is celebrated in a grand manner in 5 Sabhas of Sri Natarajar namely

  • Kanakasabha (Gold)  at Chidambaram (Thillai)
  • Velli Sabhai (Silver) at Madurai
  • Ratnasabha (Ruby) at Tiruvalankadu
  • Tamrasabha (Copper) at Tirunelveli
  • Chitrasabha (Pictures) at Kutralam

People worship Lord Shiva on this day. It takes place on the full moon night in the Tamil month of Margazhi (December–January) and this is also the longest night in a year.

In our family we make kali and Kaavathu kootu along with it. We place kali and kaavathu kootu on the banana leaf along with pappadam and offer it to God. And then we will have the prasadh or neivedhyam. Its very important festival. In Tamilnadu, they make Thalagam or Ezhu kari kootu along with Kali.
