Sohan papdi

Soan papdi (also known as soam papdi, sonpapri, sanpapdi, or patisa) [2] is a popular South Asian (India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Nepal) sweet. It is usually square in shape or served as flakes, and has a crisp and flaky texture.[3]

This sweet is commonly sold by street vendors, and is popular among children. The origin of soan papdi is a small town called Najibabad, located in the Bijnor district in the state of Uttar Pradesh.


It is made from sugar, graham flour, flour, ghee, milk, and cardamom.[4]

Some people (who?) are of the opinion that patisa and soan papdi are different things. But patisa is more hard and dark in color, while soan papdi is very soft like fiber or flakes.
