It's no secret that Indians love tandoori food. We find tandoori dishes and tandoori cuisine enthusiasts in every nook and cranny across the country. In fact, not finding a Tandoor oven in an Indian restaurant is almost as impossible as not finding Noodles in a Chinese Restaurant! The earthy and signature smoky flavors distinguish tandoori dishes from those cooked on a gas stove, and the wonderful aroma is a bonus. From a small family gathering to the biggest occasions, tandoori food is a must-have on any dinner menu.
Tandoori food is anything grilled or roasted in a clay oven called a tandoor. Punjab is well-known for its Tandoori cuisine. Rural villages feature communal tandoors, which are a cost-effective way to serve large numbers of people because the fire remains lit for long periods of time.
Tandoor cooked food has the advantage of providing delicious char-grilled flavor dishes that are almost fat-free. Tandoori cuisine is popular as the food cooked in a Tandoor has a deliciously crispy outer skin.
You must go to a reputable Indian restaurant that specializes in Tandoori food if you want to enjoy excellent Tandoori delights. The juicy and utterly succulent Tandoori Chicken, the creamy Reshmi or Malai kebabs, the boneless seekh kebabs, the delicious fish tikkas, the superb paneer tikkas, the fluffy naan, and Tandoori roti are just a few of the most popular Tandoori meals.

In India, kebabs are one of the most popular finger snacks. Mixing minced meat with spices and herbs and skewering it before grilling it in a tandoor is part of the procedure. The hot and smoky kebabs are a hit with the audience.
Without naan, a traditional Indian thali is incomplete. It is, in fact, one of the most popular dishes in any Indian restaurant. From butter naan to garlic naan, we enjoy this flatbread in various ways. It's also delicious when served with a spicy, thick gravy, such as butter chicken or kadhai paneer.
Tandoori Fish Tikka
Fish tikka is another show-stealer. It's made with marinated fish fillets that are slowly grilled on a grill. Fish tikka is just enticing for all because of its somewhat crispy skin and wonderful spicy flavor. It's usually accompanied by a green salad with thinly sliced onions, cucumber, green chilies, and lemon juice.
Tandoori paneer, the vegetarian version of tandoori chicken, is the epitome of decadence. They are typically served with tandoor roasted bell peppers and chutney as a beginning at any gathering.
Chicken tikka is made up of boneless marinated chicken pieces cooked in a clay oven called a tandoor. The marinade includes yoghurt as well as a variety of traditional spices. Chicken is roasted or barbecued over an open fire. The chicken pieces are smeared with ghee or clarified butter from time to time to enhance the flavor, and they are constantly fanned. Green pudina/ mint or dhaniya/ coriander chutney, onion rings, and lemon wedges are commonly served with chicken tikka.
Chicken is marinated in yoghurt with a variety of authentic spices before being roasted or char-grilled in a cylindrical Tandoor oven. The very sight of red chunks of marinated raw chicken in long metal skewers being lowered into the fiery Tandoor is quite amazing. Tandoori chicken is crispy on the outside and juicy and luscious on the inside when it's cooked.
