Happy Vishu Kkani to all my viewers..
is an Indian festival celebrated in the state of Kerala. It fall on the first month of Medam
as per Malayalam calendar, i.e on the first of Medam.
It normally falls on April 14th. This year it falls on April 15th.
April 14th comes Chitraa kkani(Tamil New year).
' is the most important part of the festival, which means that, seeing all good things first on the day after waking up, bring prosperity. We used to arrange the kkani the night before itself. In a large uruli
(shallow vessel of Kerala), fruits, vegetables, raw rice, money, jewels, mirror(vaalkkannadi), new mundu/dhothi, and golden cucumber with the beauty of yellow flower( Cassia fistula) and decorated Sri Krishna
all will be set. Morning the elder member of the family will lit the lamp and wakes us up with eyes closed to see the Kkani.
Then comes my favorite Kaineetam...
yes getting money/coins from elder members of the family.
is yet another part of the vishu festival. You can find lot of recipes prepared during the feast. Below are some of recipes.
