Second to Naan – Indian cuisine is characterised by its remarkable diversity, with each region boasting its own unique dishes, and cooking styles. Tandoori cooking, using a clay oven, imparts a distinctive smoky flavour to food while ensuring rapid cooking and baking times. While traditional tandoori ovens are fueled by charcoal, commercial gas tandoori ovens offer a modern and convenient alternative for professional kitchens.

The Essence of Tandoori Cooking

The secret behind the exceptional tastes of tandoori cuisine lies in the oven’s unique cooking method. Unlike ovens found in most Western-style kitchens, the tandoori oven isn’t rectangular in shape and doesn’t have a latched door that opens and closes.

Instead, the tandoori oven has an opening at the top where skewers of meat and veggies can be lowered into the oven to cook without touching the sides of the oven, and where the flattened dough can be slapped to the sides from within to bake at high temperatures.

Traditionally, the clay used for the oven helped to retain the heat and moisture, giving the meats a distinct smoky flavour and tenderness. The intense heat is similar to that found in a convection oven, derived from the bottom of the unit and reflecting off the sides.

Commercial Gas Tandoori Ovens

For professional kitchens, commercial gas tandoori ovens provide a range of benefits over traditional charcoal-fired models, offering precise temperature control, allowing chefs to achieve consistent results every time. Additionally, gas ovens eliminate the need for charcoal replenishment, saving time and labour costs, and are more environmentally friendly, as they do not produce smoke or ash.

Tandoori ovens are incredibly versatile, allowing chefs to prepare a wide array of dishes beyond the traditional tandoori chicken, as vegetables, meats, and even breads can be cooked in these ovens.
