NAAN


 

Naan is baked in a tandoor, a round unglazed clay oven that is fired by live charcoal.
It is the unique aroma of the clay and the coals that give Naan its delicious taste. There are no racks in a tandoor, so the dough is slapped straight onto the thinner walls of the hot tandoor, It sticks onto the sides and bakes within minutes

Tandoori Cooking

 

“Tandoori” is an ancient method of cooking using an unglazed clay oven

heated by charcoal. Marination of meat, fish or other foods is done with

yoghurt, lemon juice and ground green papaya and placed on long metal

skewers, then lowered into the tandoor till cooked.

 

History of The Tandoor

 

Tandoors have been found in excavations of Harappan and pre-Harappan sites. Where and when the first Tandoors existed is still a matter of continuing research. But generally speaking and because of the generic

termTandoor it is said to have originated in ancient India.

 

How It Began

 

If we trace the history of cooked foods, we usually think of the spit roast,

on which game was cooked. And while it is not known when meats were

first cooked, one could imagine that when survivors of a forest fire in prehistoric times returned to take stock and assess the extent of damage, they found a pleasant odour of charcoal mixed with animal flesh. At once, with inherent primitive instinct, they tasted the meat and found it to be

agreeable and easily chewed. This could have led to the spit roasting of

game, initially on a spear, and progressing over time to a more

sophisticated form of a seekh or skewer.

 

Construction of The Tandoor

 

The Tandoor works on the same principle as the oven. However, it is the

only kind of oven that provides complete wrap-around heat, whether by

accident or design.

 

No modern oven has that capability, making theTandoor one of the most

scientific and versatile of all cooking apparatus. By controlling the

draught and quality of fuel, we are able to produce temperatures of up to

400 C.
