Story of Mr Paanwala | Mehul Patel

I was 9 years old when I learnt the art of making Paan from my grandmother. She made them with precision and it was a treat to watch her picking out different ingredients swiftly and putting just right amount of each into the betel leaf.

Sometimes if she felt generous, she would give the leaf from the box to me.  So at a very young age I was drawn towards the tastes of Paan. The explosion of flavors, sharp bite of leaf, hit of menthol and satisfying sweetness of gooey gulkand. As a child I grew up with the fragrance of homemade Paan.

In 2009 when I moved to USA, I didn’t find many resources of Paan available around so I started making one at home for myself. Then I began experimenting with different flavors and mouth fresheners and served to friends and family. They all loved it and started calling me Mr. Paanwala with love.

I simply followed my internal guts and started Paan Casa in 2018 with the desire to serve traditional Paan in an international way and then I never looked back.
