I was lucky enough to try some paan at lunch today.  My understanding of this is that it's basically a Betel leaf wrapped around some sugar soaked rose petals.  This one at least was very flavorful, to the point that I'm glad that I didn't put the whole thing in my mouth like is the accepted style.  I got a flavor explosion of floral rose when I chomped down on it.  Took 3 bites for me.

The wikipedia definition of south Indian style paan seems to be pretty accurate to what we had.
