Wish You All a Very Happy & Prosperous Vishu..
Kerala Festival Vishu is celebrated on this day. Vishu is the Malayali New Year and we all believe the fortune for this year depend upon what we first see on that morning. Vishukkani is arranged the previous night with Rice, Gold, Fruits, Valkkanaadi (metal Mirror), Golden Cucumber, seasonal flower-Konnappoo and coins in a bell metal vessel called the otturuli.
Another exciting part is the Vishu Kaineettam. After morning bath we all wear new dress and wait for Vishu Kaineettam.The eldest member of the family gives money(it was silver / gold coins before) to all junior members, relatives and servants.
The highlight of the festival is the Vishu Sadya with traditional dishes served on a Banana leaf. Vishu sadya menu for this year was
- Parippum Neyyum
- Thakkali Pachadi
- Mathaga VanPayaru Erissery
- Paal Payasam
