A Vishu kani kit is a collection of auspicious items arranged on a banana leaf (ela) to usher in prosperity and good fortune on Vishu, the Malayali New Year. The vibrant colors and symbolic items create a stunning display to welcome the first rays of the new year.

Here are some of the common items found in a Vishu kani:

  • Konna poo (golden shower flowers): Symbolizing prosperity, these bright yellow flowers are a must-have in your Vishu kani.
  • Ela (plantain leaf): Representing new beginnings and growth, the banana leaf forms the base of your Vishu kani.
  • Valkannadi (mirror): Reflecting positivity and abundance, a brass or metal valkannadi is an essential element.
  • Kanivela (golden cucumber): A golden-colored cucumber is believed to bring prosperity in the coming year.
  • Kanipunna (eyeliner): A small container of eyeliner is included to mark the idols of Krishna or Vishnu placed near the kani
  • Small metal pot: Filled with rice, it represents wealth and stability.
  • Neerumanga (lime): A symbol of longevity and good health.
  • Aayurvedic kajal: Traditionally used as eye kohl, kajal represents health and well-being
  • Betel nut and leaves: A symbol of hospitality and good fortune.
  • Fresh fruits and vegetables: Mangoes, bananas, and jackfruit are commonly included to represent abundance from the harvest.
  • Coins: Represent prosperity and wealth.
