Let’s put it simply this way, tandoori is the term called in cooking food in a tandoor. A tandoor is something that is either shaped like a bee-hive with a cylindrical opening (maybe a clay or industrially built). It has a close structure that makes cooking fast, enclosing the heat around with only one opening where the heat can escape. This technique of cooking is listed as one of the traditional methods of preparing dishes. For many households, you only see cooking techniques such as frying, grilling, sautéing, boiling, steaming and baking, to name a few. But it is rare that you see a different and unique type of cooking. Nevertheless, for Indian Cuisine enthusiast (that might be you reading this post), this is already a common thing.

Tandoori Cooking Basics
If you want to venture into this type of cooking and want to learn more about it, look closely. Any raw (or ready to eat) materials such as poultry, bread, meat, fish, etc., then you can use the tandoor in cooking these items. For a start, marinate one of these in special spices comprised of cumin, ginger, lemon, coriander, garlic, cayenne, turmeric (oh, and don’t forget the Yogurt!) and other seasonings. The tandoor and the marinade does the magic in cooking. It’s best to marinate the raw food overnight. It actually makes the cooking time fast with the yogurt aiding in tenderizing the meat.
