I have always liked the flavor of paan and since it is very good of digestion, I really don’t mind eating it after a heavy meal . It is very recently that I have kind of given up as it really has lot of sugar .

Anyway I was really fascinated when I saw these paan ladoos here. They looked gorgeous and easy to make . These ladoos are very festive and can be made on any festival . Try them this Raksha Bandhan , I bet any brother would love them. You could make these for Diwali too . Actually one can make them anytime. I have made them for Day 2 under the theme Festival Recipes .
