Traditional way of making rice
What is Mela?
Mela means rice tray in Karen language.
In the old days, people would put all rice and food on Mela, and eat them together with their family. That was also a chat time between parents and their children. So these days Mela is a symbol of being family and usually brings back a memory of those good old days to many people when they see one.
