Soan papdi (also known as patisa, son papri, sohan papdi or shonpapri) [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]


Soan Papdi is said to have originated in India, with Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal and Rajasthan having been proposed as the origin, which, however, remains unknown.[4]


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