Mont Lin Mayar

Dumplings called Mont Lin Mayar

The dumplings called Mont Lin Mayar were sold in the food stall

Shot in the city of Yangon, Myanmar.

The street which I walked was bustling. Along with the food stalls served dishes, there were also some food stalls selling snacks. Walking the street, I found a pan with many hollows was placed under one of the parasols opened on the street. And the semispherical dumplings made with rice powder were fried on the pan. It was a popular snack called Mont Lin Mayar. 'Mont' means snack and 'Lin Mayar' means couple in Burmese.

I often saw this snack during wandering around. And I thought it was very similar to a Japanese popular snack called TAKOYAKI every time. They were so resemblant that I thought the Burmese snack might come from the same source as the Japanese snack. However, there was one decisive difference between them. The Japanese snack usually contains octopus inside. Yet it was unusual in Myanmar.
