Vishu Katta Recipe - Vishu Recipes

Vishu Katta Recipe

Vishu Katta is made with raw rice and coconut milk as base ingredients.Vishu Katta is basically a rice cake cooked in coconut milk with jeera flavour.After googling I found that Vishu Katta is must in Central Kerala for Vishu Breakfast.Traditionally Vishu Katta is served along with jaggery syrup which is a great combination.

I referred a youtube video which showed the procedure of making of Vishu Katta and it came out as good as it was showed in the video, yay I got it right for the first time itself...and thats sure a 8th wonder in my case ;)

Check out more vishu recipes and sadya recipes that I posted earlier.

My Notes:

  • You can replace unakkalari with raw rice or rose matta rice too.
  • The rice I had was broken so i just soaked it for less time.
  • Unakkalari is a special type of Kerala Raw rice which gives a unique flavour to the katta.
  • You can even transfer to banana leaf while making pieces, banana leaf gives a nice flavour.
  • Make a jaggery syrup a bit thicker so that it doesn't run easily, more like honey in consistency.I made it a little thinner.
