  • 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)
  1. Tear apart the paan leaves using your hand and add to a mixer.

  2. In the same mixer jar, add all the other ingredients except for water. Pulse together for few seconds.

  3. 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.

  4. Pass it through a sieve and collect the smooth refreshing paan drink

To Serve
  1. 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.

  2. Pour the paan drink into the shot glasses and enjoy.
