Chocolate meetha Paan (mouthfreshner)

Sweet paan or mitha paan are my fav and i look for paan when i go to any marriage feast specially when it is Rajasthani style marriage you will surely have paan in our menu 's... I made these chocolate paan bcoz am great chocolates lover i wanted to include some chocolaty touch to my mouth freshener.. 

Today we will make my fav version "chocolate Meetha or Sweet Paan". we would also use many interesting & commonly available ingredients to prepare our chocolate Paan.

Its so much fun when we prepare paan at home i enjoyed preparing these yummilicious  chocolate paan  and enjoyed the refreshing taste of this chocolaty meetha paan!!! ....



1 tsp  Raisins or ( you can also fill in tutti frutti  )
1 tsp Chopped cashews
1 tsp Melted dairy milk
1 tsp Date candy
2 tbsp Sweetened betel nuts(optinal )
1 tsp Gulkand (rose petals preserves)
1 tsp sweet sounf (sweet aniseeds)
Mix in all the above ingredients.
4 betel leaves(paan )
¼ tsp choona(lime scale)
1/2 tsp katha (optional)
1 dariy milk  

For garnish

chocolate vermicelli
chocolate syrup 


  • Wash the betel leaves.
  • Apply a little choona/lime scale.
  • Apply the katha on this.
  • Make a cone of the betel leaf.
  • Fill in the mixture pressing it down with finger tips and holding the cone firmly.
  • Fill 3/4 of the cone.

  • Fold the two sides.
  • Bring the top flap down.
  •  Insert a tooth pick to seal.
  • Trim the extras.
  • Dip this into melted dairy milk.(To melt the dairy milk bar just break the bar and  in a microwave container keep in microwave for 30 seconds ) 
  • Drizzle some chocolate syrup.
  • Sprinkle some chocolate vermicelli.
  • Also prick a cheery  on the toothpick..
  • Chill (till the chocolate outer layer is set) and serve.

I used dairy milk bcoz its easily available all time in my pantry but you can even fill some dark chocolates with the other fillings ..
