Sajji (Balochi: سجی‎‎) is a dish originating from the Balochistan province of Pakistan. It consists of whole Mutton mainly lamb or chicken, 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 dish of Baloch people and is available in all regions of Pakistan. 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.
