Soan papdi (also known as patisa, son papri, sohan papdi or shonpapdi)[2] is a popular Indian dessert. It is usually cube-shaped or served as flakes, and has a crisp and flaky texture. It was traditionally sold loose in a rolled paper cone, but modern industrial production has led it to be sold in tightly formed cubes.[3] With the popularity of the sweet, newer flavors such as mango, strawberry, pineapple and chocolate have been introduced.


Soan papdi is said to have originated in India, specifically West Maharashtra; spread across Gujarat , Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, and Rajasthan also having been proposed as potential origins.[4]


Its main ingredients are sugar, gram flour, flour, ghee, milk,and cardamom.[5]
