I was offered this paan in a restaurant in Jaipur on MI Road where I had a very late lunch of Idli and Dosa followed by South Indian Coffee. Can’t remember how many years had gone by since I had a paan. Not that I have been a regular paan eater ever, it always has been an occasional affair.
There are many ways in which a paan can be made and some of them include tobacco too. I of course do not take tobacco so I was a bit hesitant in eating this. But the server assured me that this had no tobacco or supari (Areca Nut or Beetle Nut). I finally decided to take the plunge and eat it! Yes I gobbled it all and liked it, it had a mild flavor and was sweet. I did a Google search and found and someone with a colorful name of Mucchad is selling paan even online! So when did you last had a paan? Maybe you would like to order one online?
