Calling Tandoori lovers. Great deal on all our grills and clay tandoori oven specialties – meats and seafood every Tuesday at all Mint & Mustards.
The Clay Tandoor Oven is at the heart of Indian Barbecue and Meat Grilling. The heat for a tandoor was traditionally generated by a charcoal or wood fire, burning within the tandoor itself, thus exposing the food to live fire, radiant heat cooking, and hot-air, convection cooking, and smoking in the fat and food juices that drip on to the charcoal and adding an amazing flavour to the meats.
Temperatures in a tandoor can approach 480 °C (900 °F), and it is common for tandoor ovens to remain lit for long periods to maintain the high cooking temperature. The tandoor design is something of a transitional form between a makeshift earth oven and the horizontal-plan masonry oven.
