I like Iranian sweet dishes.

Growing up in Pakistan, I liked falooda.

Also as a kid I loved eating pashmak, in Pakistan we call it lacheh or lacha. Haven’t had it in ages.

Melts you in your mouth...pauj :angel:
Their sweets are very different than ours. They use a lot of nuts and rose water.
They do the best seekh (their kobideh) kebabs. They can have strong lamb smell but are massive and meaty.

looks like granny's corpse's hair..
traditionally its sugar dissolved in hot haighly humid air and then very fast condensed again, but thats american way of doing it and as its easier you see it in parks and vendors use that way . iranian way of making it is a little different

In the first step, to prepare pashmak, you need to cook sugar (turn it into syrup).
Wait until the sugar thickens. To cook, combine sugar with water and boil until it thickens.
In the next step, you need to grease a tray.
Then pour the sugar in it and put it on the flame until it warms up a little.
Then make the liquid into a coil and let several people pull it from each side to make it stretch.
You need to turn it over and pull it again until it is completely hard.
In the next part, grind the white flour in hot oil, pour it on the bottom of the tray and heat the tray.
Also, in the next step, several people spin the obtained liquid with oiled hands until it turns into wooly substance .

tastes very nice

taste is sweet and texture is flaky, looks like the Iranian thing, but just compressed and compacted together into a cube, breaks apart very easy. Super nice, see if you can find it somewhere.

Traces its origins back to your area too

I remember eating this exact thing but I don't remember the name - but it wasn't named saon papdi
from that same wiki:

"Soan papdi (also known as san papri, shompapri,sohan papdi, shonpapdi or patisa) is a popular dessert in the Indian subcontinent. The term sohan is of Persian origin."
