A national addiction.

We love it, we hate it, we can't have enough of "paan" - betel leaf with a smattering of lime, a dash of catechew and betelnut and a dozen other things depending on whether your taste is spartan or baroque!
This song ("my lover chews paan") deserves a mention because it's about paan, it's about a dying folk theatre tradition and an actress I adore.

SoulCurry Yes, it leaves AWFUL red stains! It's sweet and slightly minty.

KateR sweet and slightly minty sounds good, but I think I'll skip the staining. :)

Tulpje I dunno what they taste like, but they sure look cool.

sydneylizzie Love the bright colours in the photo. Am a bit dubious about trying, though, with the stains and all!
