Meetha paan
Maghai paan| Betel leaf

Betel leaf, a mouth freshener and a digestive aid. I love meetha paan, or sweet betel leaf after a hearty meal.

We got this plant 2 months back and now it is producing these beautiful, fragrant leaves.

The plant is supported by a moss stick.

This plant is the Maghai variety. Small but very fragrant.

I added some gulkand (rose jam), saunf (fennel seeds), tutti frooti, cardamom seeds and desiccated coconut.
