Vishu Katta (rice Pudding In Coconut Milk)
Most of you won't be familiar with this recipe 'Vishu Katta'. This is a very traditional dish of Kerala prepared only on the day of 'Vishu'. In Northern parts of Kerala, after seeing 'Vishukkani', Vishu katta is served as breakfast. Vishukkani literally means "the first thing seen on the day of Vishu after waking up" which includes an arrangement of auspicious articles intended to signify prosperity, including rice, fruits and vegetables, mirror, yellow flowers called konna (Cassia fistula) and coins in the prayer room of the house. I learned this recipe of Vishu Katta from my friend and I prepare this dish for some special occasions. Vishu Katta is delicious, sweet and can be served as breakfast, dinner or even as a dessert.
