It is common to find vendors selling paan outside most Indian restaurants, and sometimes the restaurant itself lays out a tempting batch near the billing counter for the customers to pick up after a meal.

Meetha Paan, made of betel leaves filled with a range of sweet jam-like spreads and crunchy titbits like tutti-frutti, cherries, chopped dates, etc., is a delightful treat to munch on, and a very effective mouth freshener.

It is enjoyed mostly after dinner, although some people like to have it after lunch too.

There are numerous varieties of paan that can be made by mixing and matching the fillings. You can easily make it at home too, according to your preferences.

The paan has become so famous that it also inspires other recipes like the Paan Shot or Paan Ice-Cream
