Paan Kulfi

What is Pann?.... Pann is often served wrapped in a betel leaf, Betel chewing is a part of many Asian cultures. In Gujarat, in fact in the whole of India, Pann is must after lunch and dinner. Paan has been playing an important part in social life and customs for hundreds of years. In the courts of Medieval Rulers, the betel leaf or pan was offered as part of hospitality, friendship and love. Paan is not only a flavor burst in the mouth but the leaf aids digestion. The gulkand - rose leaf preserve is a coolant, and the fennel seeds act as a breath freshener.
