Paan is a widely used chewable made by taking a betel creeper leaf and wrapping up ingredients like betel nut, lime paste, almond powder, grated coconut, tobacco etc. with it. The delicacy of paan is enjoyed all over the Indian subcontinent including Bangladesh. Paan eating, rather chewing is deeply rooted in our culture and specially the older people love it. Generally Paan has two categories, one is with tobacco and another is without tobacco (Sweet).
