Vishu Kanji is served as breakfast served on the auspicious day of 'Vishu'. It is traditionally relished after viewing the Vishukanni, early in the morning. In major parts of Central Kerala, it is referred to as ' Vishu Katta'.
It is prepared with parboiled rice, white beans and finely scraped coconut. This kanji tastes best with Chakka puzhukku - steamed jackfruit.
