Well, Well, now after getting so many boxes of that so-called “meetha besan” (soan papdi) during Diwali, I have come to a point of calling it a synonym to the festival. Don’t you get pissed with having so many useless boxes of this sweet? Okay, I get it that it is an easy and cheap option to go to on Diwali, but guys “soan papdi” seriously?
In fact, I can also conclude that since years unknown, soan papdi has been actually photo bombing our Diwali pictures. All I have to say is, just consider other easy options for Diwali gifts.
I can sense my readers relating to this struggle of mine with the demon- soan papdi. Guys, we live in India, a country that offers hundreds of different types of sweets.
Why not go for “Chena Rasgulla”– yes it is tasty and I will smile at you when you bring me this!
Kaju Katli is always invited
Oh, you can also consider buying “atta peda”- still better than soan papdi though!! Can you sense my frustration with this yellow besan sweet, that I am ready to compromise with Peda???
There are several other options that one can explore before he or she decides to buy this soan papdi which will keep rotting on your dining tables for months and weeks after Diwali. We request our readers to not play this soan papdi game this year because it is something most of us strongly dislike. It is a besan sweet which does not even taste good!
