A Tandoor oven is essentially a very large clay pot, often standing waist-high above the kitchen floor. The sides of a Tandoor oven curve inwards towards a centralized exhaust hole.
The Tandoor is used for cooking certain types of Indian & Middle Eastern foods such as Tandoori Chicken, Chicken Tikka and bread varieties like Tandoori Roti and Naan. Tandoori refers to a dish that is cooked in the Tandoor oven.
All Tandoori items are served with Rice, Masala Sauce (tomato & butter sauce) or Curry Sauce, and Onion Chutney. Tandoori dishes are LOW CARB and LOW CHOLESTROL, grilled not fried!
