Mont kywe the (Burmese: မုန့်ကျွဲသည်း; pronounced [mo̰ʊɴt͡ɕwɛ́ðɛ́], lit.'buffalo liver cake') is a traditional Burmese snack or mont. It bears resemblance to the Indonesian and Malaysian kuih kosui and Filipino kutsinta.

This snack is a rice cake pudding made of rice flour, jaggery, salt, and alkaline limewater. After cooking, the pudding is served up in slices and garnished with coconut shavings.[1] Mont kywe the uses rice flour milled from kauk kyan (ကောက်ကြမ်း), which has a high amylose content.[2]
