Falling in the middle of April, Vishu marks the beginning of astronomical Hindu New Year.  Just like other festivals, food plays an important role in Vishu celebration. The legacy of our cuisine offers a feast of flavourful dishes making Vishu more exciting year by year. Apart from the mouth-watering dishes, Vishu Kani is the much-awaited ritual for every Malayali. A beautiful arrangement of kanikonna, vegetables, fruits, rice, pulses, gold, kasavu and mirror in front of Lord Krishna idol, symbolizes hope and promise in the coming days.  The Kaineetam offered by the elders is based on a timeless belief that wealth that is shared with others will grow and multiply in abundance.
