With over million square miles of changing topography divided into thirty-one states and territories, India’s geography and local produce have played great part in forming regional culinary traditions. Its multitude of languages, religions, and food habits are influenced by a vast cultural history.
Not limited to spices and flavors, Indian cuisine has a rich tradition of cooking tools as well! A Tandoor is the name of a vat-shaped clay oven that is heated with mesquite wood, charcoal, or even natural gas. The oven produces extremely high temperatures sealing the succulent juices of various marinated meats, keeping them juicy, tender, and flavorful!
All our meats are prepared with fresh herbs and spices. Once seasoned to perfection, the meats are marinated overnight in our special recipe yogurt sauce. After collecting the marinated flavors, these meats are skewered and baked in the Tandoor with all fats being eliminated during the high temperature cooking process. This freshly-baked, mouth watering delicacy is then served directly from the clay oven on hot-sizzling platters to your table with condiments.
At Tandoor of India, we offer authentic Indian food crafted with care and in reverence to historical tradition. For centuries, some of our favorite spices have been known not only for their distinct tastes, but also for their ancient healing properties. These spices mixed with fresh ingredients are perfectly blended to create unique flavors for each dish we serve.
