Soan papdi (also known as patisa, son 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 introduced.
Soan papdi is said to have originated in India, primary in West Bengal; with Gujarat , Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal, and Rajasthan having been proposed as the origin, which however remains unknown.
