Hey paras how do you do that with the panparag and how do you get its flavour.Here in the US we don't have any choice unless we have a sheesah at our home.

I never use anything other than water in the base. I cannot stand the smell of pan masala, so no question of adding it to the water.

One of our famous cricketers uses Red Bull in place of water. Not so bad.

Make sure everything is clean specially the pipe.

start with the water in the base,fill till the pipe is just submerged about 1 cm or so.
Then get the flavour out in a plate or something,mix it well and loosen it as much as possible.Fill it in the chillam as loosely as possible,dont pack it in tightly . Fill till the brim shouldnt bulge nor form a concave. cover it with aluminium foil tightly, careful not tearing the foil.Using a tooth pick make the smallest possible holes at about half cm distance. Light the coal and puff away. Pull hard initially and the flavour will burn properly.

I have heard about milk base, which in turn gives out crazy smoke. Yet to try with my sheesha but will post the results sooner. Paras or other guys, you could try it as well
