Most food scholars trace the Tandoor’s origin to north eastern Persia. From there it spread through central Asia from Russia to Pakistan and then to India.
A Tandoori oven is designed to provide very high, dry heat. Fuel for this fire is provided by charcoals lining the bottom of the structure. In order to produce temperatures approaching 480 degrees celsius, we maintain a high long vigil to keep the tandoori oven’s charcoals burning all the time. At such high temperatures, most foods cooked in a tandoori oven develop a very crisp outer layer without sacrificing moistness in the inside.
Meats like chicken, fish, beef and lamb do very well in tandoori ovens. Traditionally, the meat is first skewered on a thin metal blade and inserted into a centre hole of the oven. The meat remains suspended in the hottest part of the oven above the coals.
Foods intended for the tandoori oven are usually marinated in lime or yogurt-based marinated to add flavour and moisture. Others may receive a dry spice rub, which gives tandoori dishes their distinctive red tinge. In the case of breads, the raw loaves are quickly pressed against the upper walls of the tandoori oven and peeled off by hand several minutes later. Bread can burn very quickly, so it often takes an experienced Indian cook to know when to remove it from the heat of the tandoori oven.
