Mont-lone-yay-paw literally means 'snack balls, floating in water'. Sounds interesting? Yes, this is also another seasonal food, often served during the Myanmar new year water festival. Here you go.. with a recipe and video clip too.



1. Glutinous rice - 800g
2. Rice - 200g
3. Clean palm sugar - 400g
4. A medium-sized coconut - 1
5. Banana leaves - a few



How to make

  • Cut the palm sugar into small piece. Take some mixture for a small ball and put a piece of palm sugar into it. Wrap it around with the mixture into a form of a ball.
  • Boil water in a big pot. While the water is boiling, put the rice balls into it. The balls will to the bottom of the pot. But once its ready, the balls float on top of the water.
  • Take out the floating balls with a rive and put on the banana leaves on the tray.
  • Chill before serving for a while and put some coconut fibre and serve.
