Paan Puri (not Pani Puri) from India

Paan Puri

A colleague of ours brought these into the office today. Not to be confused with pani puri, these were little Indian sweets meant to mimic betel leaf pan...and indeed features betel leaf paste in the outer layer. I didn't care that much for the rose petal taste in the filling (nor was it as rich as things like mysore pak), but I'm glad I got to try this as apparently it's rather unique even in India.

I cna't help asking...what exactly are those SILVER thing that seems to be painted on the outside?

It's literally silver, the precious metal. It's commonly used with Indian sweets. I guess it's not that much different from knocking back a few shots of Goldschlager. (evil grin)
