Sajji is a native dish of the desert province of Balochistan, Pakistan that is popular in Balochi cuisine. It consists of whole lamb, in skewers (fat and meat intact), marinated only in salt, sometimes covered with green papaya paste, stuffed with rice, then roasted over coals. Sajji is considered done when it is at the 'rare' stage. It is served with a special bread "Kaak", "roti" or "naan", which is baked in an oven, wrapped around a stone"tandoor". Sajji is favourite of Balochistan natives, where most are nomads. Regional varieties are found with subtle differences in flavouring notably in the urban centres of Karachi, Islamabad or Lahore, uses chicken instead of lamb, and is roasted until it is medium or well-done.
