Atapi and Vatapi are two demons mentioned in Hindu mythology who were notorious for committing the sin of Brahmana Hatya (the killing of a Brahmin).

According to the legend, these two demons would invite Brahmins to their abode and offer them a meal, having Vatapi (one of the demons) cooked in it.
