A TANDOOR is actually a clay oven that is heated with charcoal, this is usually used for chicken, naans, and other foods. High temperatures in it allow juices to seal in, resulting in juicier meat as compared to other methods of cooking. It is predominantly a cylindrical clay or metal oven used in cooking and baking. It is used to bake traditional tandoori dishes, such as skewered chicken. The flattened dough of the traditional naan (or nan) breads is also baked in these ovens by slapping the dough on the hot inside walls of the oven. TANDOOR is very effective.
