Soan papdi (also known as patisa, san papri, sohan papdi or shonpapdi) 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. With the popularity of the sweet, newer flavors such as mango, strawberry, pineapple and chocolate have been added.
Soan papdi is said to have originated specifically in Western state Maharashtra; and spread across Gujarat, Punjab, and Rajasthan states. The Indian state Uttar Pradesh also has been proposed as potential origin of the sweet.
