No meal is complete without a good Paan to wrap it up! The favoured post meal condiment for generations. Hardly surprising, the Meetha Paan is a must feature on the menu at most Indian weeddings and is also a hotseller on the streets!..Mitha (sweet) Paan. Paan's importance lies in the digestive value of the green paan leaves. Betel nuts provide for good facial muscle exercise, help strengthen the teeth and gums (due to physical exercise) and chunnam (calcium paste) adds to the calcium content of the otherwise deficient diet. Most of the other contents which have slowly, over a period of centuries, made their way into the paan are of just the taste-value with a few or no health benefits.
