  • 4 nos Fresh Betel leaves
  • 1 no Meetha Paan Masala (Refer notes)
  • 2 tsp Fennel Seeds
  • 2 tsp Dessicated coconut
  • 3 tbsp Gulkand
  • 3 scoops Vanilla Ice-Cream
  • 2-3 nos ice cubes
  • 1/4 cup Water
  • 2 tsp Sugar (optional)
  • a drop of Green Food Colouring (optional)


  • Tear apart the paan leaves using your hand and add to a mixer.
  • In the same mixer jar, add all the other ingredients except for water. Pulse together for few seconds.
  • Add water and food colour if using and blend until smooth. Do a taste test to see if you need sugar as gulkand already has some sugar in it. I added about 2 tsp of sugar and blended it again.
  • Pass it through a sieve and collect the smooth refreshing paan drink

To Serve

  • Take some black salt in a plate. Rim the edges of the shot glass with lemon wedge and directly invert it onto the salt to coat the rim.
  • Pour the paan drink into the shot glasses and enjoy.
