Thanks Sundari for this article on Paan. I am delighted to see the various uses of it through this articles. I always like vetthalai with paaku and chunnaabu.
In India we had it abundant in our houses because, some give vethala pakku on the festive days and we don't know what to do about it and I used to eat it, right and left, even without paakku and sunnammbu. i like the taste very much and that too for digestion.
Nowadays i take some 'sombu' for indigestion here as paan is a rare thing here and when available it is costly like 1 leaf for a dollar!
This article reminded me of an incident when my grandpa, when on a tour to North India, bought some paan and had it, which later made him dizzy only to realise that in some paans they add something to get the 'kick'. Poor grandpa!
