tandoor is an mud clay oven in which indian delicacies are cooked.traditionally it is a mud clay oven lit over firewood.
modern adaptations are the one which iam showing in the photos which are used in cities although they can never achieve the heat of the traditional "tandoor"nor can it replicate the smoked taste of the food cooked over firewood.
indian breads, chicken and mutton delicacies grilled over the fires are specialities.
this form of cooking extends right from afghanistan,north west frontier province punjab and north india.
the most simple form of indian bread is the "tandoori roti"then add to it the variants like nan(triangular two piece indian bread) rumali roti( very thin leaved indian bread akin to the thinnness of a handkerchief) kulcha(multilayered roti) paratha(multileavened bread often with boiled potato mash mixed with the flour)
