Hsi htamin (Burmese: ဆီထမင်း, pronounced [sʰì tʰəmɪ́ɴ], lit.'oiled rice'; also spelt si htamin) is a traditional Burmese snack or mont, popularly served as a breakfast dish, often served alongside peas or dried fish.[1]

The dish consists of glutinous rice cooked with turmeric, salt, and onions, and served with roasted sesame seeds and fried onions, which renders a golden hue to the rice.[2]
