Paandemonium: All about paans
Did you know Queen Nurjahan popularised the tradition of paan? It is now used on a regular basis as a form of breath cleanser or a sense of hospitality to the guests. The main consumption of paan and the innovative ideas that are used to make it more delicious comes from India—the paan zone. The Paandemonium concept is truly interesting. From a home beverage, paan has made its way to wedding halls and cafe counters. These leaves come in small triangular shapes of happiness, wrapped with a toothpick or clove. In addition to this, paan is now displayed on decorated trays with all of its masala accompanying it for you to choose from. Serving paan to your guests, most especially in marriage ceremonies right after dinner has become a tradition. No paan? No blessings for the newly weds. If you have never tried paan before, you are missing out on a breathtaking explosion in your mouth. Here are our top picks for paans that you need to try out! Fire paan— This paan is the ultimate dragon feel. All you need is 10 seconds of courage to chew on a variety of sweetness mixed with fruitiness that are sure to drive your taste buds crazy. Dilkhush mishti paan— This is the safest option to go for. The ingredients are the basic flavours of sweet, betel nut and catechu with a few drops of lime. Paan with Gulrarn— This paan consists of orange, Jahran betel nut and coconut. As exquisite as the idea is, this paan takes you back to a fresh splash of flavours on a hot summer evening. Chocolate paan— Yes chocolate lovers! This one is for you. This paan is dipped with chocolate syrup and with a few sprinklers on top, you might just confuse it for a candy. Being an Asian and not having paan ever in your life will put your “YOLO” life to shame. So whenever you need an added flavour to your mouth after a hearty meal, have a paan! Or just have it for the thrill of it!
