An after-meal mouth freshener, paan has been a staple in many Indian households amidst the elders and it is hailed for its health benefits too. A typical paan contains coconut powder, gulkand (sweetened rose petals), cloves, saunf (fennel), and red katha paste and the flavours range from sweet to fires-of-hell, depending on your palate.

Paan’walas these days are getting artsy with a plethora of ingredients and spices to create a fete of flavours and varieties for their patrons and desis are going gaga! On a similar note, we chanced upon this paan parlour in CP known as Yamu's Panchayat and it’s beating your local gumti’wala at their own game for sure.

About The Paan-deets!

Established way back in 1950 at New Delhi, this paan parlour has been doing a paantastic job at keeping our mouths shut! This kiosk serves over 40 kinds of paan, inclusive of options such as Fresh Litchi Paan, Raat Ki Rani Paan, Ishq-E-Khas Paan and even their famous Chocolate Paan. One of the most popular paan which caters to the elites is the Aadab Paan which is rolled up in gold sheets and a costs a whooping ₹550!

If you’re not feeling too adventurous and you like your paan just like naani used to make it, then go for the good ol’ Supari Paan. But we’d suggest you to not shy away from sampling other salivating options so maybe you can begin with Jasmine Paan and then opt for the strawberry one just in case.

BTW!

The brand has also launched a ‘non-spit paan’ where the contents of it can be swallowed so spitting it out is not necessary. The non-spit dry betel leaves have been developed by Delhi's Mahila Krishi Vikas Samiti and also it will make our experience smoother.

Used as a token of appreciation, a Hindu symbol of purity and welfare, a digestive chewable wageirah wageirah, paan is an integral element in Indian lives. The essence of chewing a minty paan after a hearty meal and then gradually sliding into a slumber will always remain on the top of our to-do list, on weekends specially!

Location: ₹150 for two people (approx.)

Cost: 92, NDMC Market, Connaught Place, New Delhi

Timings: 11:30am – 12:30am
