Ahuti in Hindu Rituals

Ahuti, in Hindu rituals, is offering oblations in fire to various deities. It is part of all rituals, rites and yajnas in Hinduism.

Ahuti consists of ghee (clarified butter), milk, curd, cooked rice, fried rice, fried paddy, juice of the Soma creeper etc.

Ahut is made to Agni, the god of fire, through whom it is believed to reach the respective deities.

All that is offered as oblations are products of earth. In certain rituals, the other three elements – fire, air and ether – are also offered.
