What is a Tandoor Oven?

The Tandoor oven is a traditional cylindrical oven that has been used for centuries in various cultures. Originating in India, it has become an essential element in the cuisine of various regions, bringing its charm to iconic dishes such as naan and tandoori. Usually made of clay or metal, the Tandoor is distinguished by its unique shape and ability to reach extremely high temperatures.

For what purpose is a Tandoor Oven used?

The Tandoor oven is used to cook a variety of dishes ranging from breads to meats and vegetables. Its unique design allows food to cook at high temperatures evenly, creating a crispy exterior while maintaining internal juiciness. In addition, the Tandoor brings a distinctive, smoky flavour to food, elevating the flavour profile of every bite.

What can be cooked in a Tandoor Oven?

  1. Naan: This flat, fluffy bread is a classic delicacy that cooks perfectly in the Tandoor. The high temperature of the oven ensures that the naan puffs up and acquires a light and airy texture.
  2. Tandoori Chicken: An iconic dish, tandoori chicken is marinated in a mixture of spices and yoghurt before being cooked in the Tandoor. The result is juicy, flavourful meat with a distinctive red colour.
  3. Paneer Tikka: Chunks of paneer cheese marinated and grilled in the Tandoor create an irresistible snack with a slightly charred exterior and soft interior.
