It is no secret that Indians live their tandoori dishes. From a street shop to a fancy restaurant- we find tandoori foods and tandoori food lovers at every nook and corner worldwide. In fact, not finding a tandoor oven in an Indian restaurant is almost impossible. 

A tandoor is a cylindrical clay oven used in cooking and baking. The tandoor is used for cooking in Turkey, Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan, the Transcaucasus, the Balkans, the Middle East, Central Asia as well as India and Bangladesh. The heat for a tandoor was traditionally generated by a charcoal fire or wood fire, burning within the tandoor itself, thus exposing the food to both live-fire, radiant heat cooking, and hot-air, convection cooking.

What makes tandoori dishes different from gas-stove cooked ones is the earthy taste and signature smoky flavor – and the heavenly aroma is an add-on to that. From a closed-door homely feast to the grandest of the events – tandoori food items are a must on every dinner menu.
