Paan Shot recipe is a refreshing and aromatic drink generally served after meals as a substitute for Paan. When made with readymade Paan, it gets ready in a jiffy. However, if it is not available, even then you can easily make it with few ingredients.

Paan shot is just like drinking Paan instead of eating it and you can call it Paan Sharbat or Paan Shake as well.

Paan Shot recipe

Paan needs no introduction. A very refreshing betel leaf mouth freshener. As you all know it is a very common practice in our culture to serve Paan after meals. Paan after sumptuous meals is considered a delicacy also…. a sign of being a perfect host.

Almost all the parties at my home have this in the end and  I win loads of applause from my guests.

If you are fond of mouth fresheners, then do try this healthy Amla Beet Mouth freshener 

Benefits of Paan

If had in moderation, Paan aids in digestion also and promotes oral health.

Varieties of Paan

Paan is available in many varieties like plain, Banarsi, Meetha.

With time many more flavors have been added to it like chocolate paan, Rasmalai paan, etc.

But my favorite is Meetha paan only though hubby likes Saada (Plain).

In fact, Meetha Paan is no less than a dessert, filled with rose petal jam (gulkand), cardamom, fennel seeds,  coconut flakes, glazed cherries, etc.

  • 1/2 Desiccated Coconut
  • 2 Mint Candy Or 1/4 tsp Mint Essence
  • 4-5 Drops Green Food Colour Optional
  • 1 Cup Chilled Water
  • 3-4 Ice cubes

Instructions
 

With Readymade Paan

  • Put Meetha Paan in the blender and blend it as fine as possible.
  • Add water, mint, ice cubes and green colour and churn again.
  • Pass the mixture through a strainer.
  • Serve as it is or Chill in Refrigerator.
  • In case you keep it in the refrigerator then run it in the blender for a second or two before serving.

Without Readymade Paan

  • Roughly tear/chop betel leaves.
  • Put all the ingredients along with chopped betel leaves in the blender.
  • Run the blender for 2-3 minutes or till everything gets nicely blended.
  • Strain it.
  • Serve immediately or Chill in refrigerator for later use.
  • In case you keep it in the refrigerator then run it in the blender for a second or two before serving.

Notes

  1. Please bring readymade paan and not just the betel leaf.
  2. For mint, I used Polo mouth freshener.
  3. If you like to chew a little bit of Paan then skip straining.
  4. Again adding colour is also optional.
  5. Its colour darkens because of the presence of lime and Catechu (Katthha).
  6. If too dark the colour, you may add 2-3 tsp cold milk to it.
  7. If possible ask your Paan Vendor to make Meetha Paan using Desi/ Maghai Betel leaf. Don't worry, he will understand.
  8. If made with betel leaves, it retains its colour and doesn't get darkened.
