Fancy Food Show Brings Exotic Chipotle Blend

White Jasmine, LLC just introduced their new Sajji Masala at this years Winter Fancy Food Show. This spice blend consists of Chipotle peppers, garlic, brown sugar, Mexican oregano, in addition to several other flavorful spices.

The particular Sajji flavor is a staple in the southern part of Pakistan, where traditionally many meats are marinated in delicious spices and roasted in hot sand. "Our goal was to capture that flavor and aroma, I would say we have been successful in doing that".

Sajji Masala can be used with any kind of meats, fish and vegetables. Some of our fans even use it in their egg salad sandwiches, this blend adds fabulous flavor to just about anything.

Try their recipes for Spicy Hamburgers and Sajji Garlic Chicken available on their website.

White Jasmine is confident that once you try their Sajji Masala, it will be really hard for you to stop cooking and trying this incredible spice in almost anything.
