Muchhad Making Paan According to Muchhad the most important thing in making a paan is the way it's prepared, it differs from hand to hand. It's the way it's made makes it special. For example if the Chuna and Kathha is not in the right proportion it can be harmful. If one happens to put more Chuna then it cuts the tounge. But again all the ingredients that are put and the quantity of each depends on the likes and dislikes of a person.
