Htoe mont (Burmese: ထိုးမုန့်; pronounced [tʰómo̰ʊɴ]) is a traditional Burmese dessert or mont. The dessert is a glutinous rice cake cooked with raisins, cashews and coconut shavings,[1] and is consistently prodded during the cooking process, lending it a texture similar to Turkish delight. Htoe mont is prepared in a similar manner as other Burmese desserts including mont kalame (မုန့်ကုလားမဲ) and Pathein halawa.[2] Htoe mont is considered a delicacy of Mandalay, and is a popular souvenir from the city.[3]
