As’salaamualaikum, peace be upon everyone!
Recently we launched our latest product – the Xinjiang Kaobao! Yeay!
In today’s blog post, we will spill the details about it and why you, yes you, should grab a bag of these the next time you visit us. Or you can always order from us and we can deliver it to you.
What exactly is Xinjiang Kaobao?
Xinjiang is a vast region of deserts and mountains, located in northwest China. Kaobao on the other hand means baked bread. So in a way, you can say that Xinjiang Kaobao is Xinjiang-style baked bread. For branding purposes, we call ours as Xinjiang-style baked meat pies.
How does it differ from other breads/pastries?
- 100% handmade.
- Do not contain any yeast.
- Do not contain any preservative, artificial colouring and additive.
How does it taste like?
Unbelievably good! The pastry has a crunchy exterior, and the mutton filling has a slight sweetness due to the onions. Can we say it tastes something like Cornish pasty? Maybe yes, maybe no. You just need to taste it and be the judge for yourself.
What’s the best way to eat it?
Like a regular baked pastry, these are best taken hot. You can pop them in the oven for two to three minutes just to warm it if it is cold.
How many should you eat?
One or two would be enough. But Kai Kai can take five of these in one sitting.
Are these only stuffed with mutton?
Mutton and onions. Plus a few other condiments. Traditionally, the filling is made this way. We are thinking of exploring other types of fillings – chicken or beef.
How long can these keep?
Approximately a day in room temperature, and three days in the fridge. We would rather not go beyond that as our Xinjiang Kaobao are made fresh and do not contain any preservative.
That’s pretty much all there is to know about Xinjiang Kaobao. Let us know if you have any questions, or would like to place an order.
