Known by many names such as Sohan Papdi, Shon papdi, Shom papri, and Patisa, Soan Papdi is a popular North Indian sweet and is widely popular in other neighboring countries of the Indian sub-continent. The term ‘sohan’ is originated from Persia and bears some resemblance to the Persian ‘sohanpashmaki’. Soan Papdi is usually cube shaped or in is flakes with a crisp and flaky texture. In traditional times, Soan Papdi was served in paper cones which used to be flaky, but the modern way of serving has changed to cubes or cylindrical shaped sweets wrapped in a sweet box with chopped almonds and pistachio on top.
