It’s All In the Oven
Tandoori chicken is traditionally made in a classic clay tandoor oven. The tandoor is oval in shape and origianted in Northern India and Pakistan. It’s designed to hold hot charcoal and can reach temperatures of over 500 degrees. Charcoal isn’t used too much in restaurants these days because of health and safety issues, but the same effect can be achieved with lava rocks or ceramic.
Meat cooked in tandoors retains more of its juices, so it tastes much more flavorful. kabobs, vegetables and bread also benefit from a little time in a hot tandoor. Give this centuries-old cooking method a try next time you have a craving for barbeque.
