Naan Baking in Tandoor... (One of the many veriety of Indian Bread)

Bread has been one of the main food for humans since ancient times.

Different varieties of Indian bread include: Chapati, Phulka, Puri, Roti, Paratha, Naan, Kulcha, Bhatoora, Baqar Khani, Appam, Dosa, Luchi, Puran Poli, Pathiri, Porotta and many more. Some of these, like Paratha and Roti have many varieties. Some varieties depend on the kind of grain used to prepare them, and others depend on the fillings they contain.

 

A tandoor (Hindi: तन्दूर) is a cylindrical clay oven used in cooking and baking. The tandoor is used for cooking in India, Turkey, Iran, Armenia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, the Transcaucasus, the Balkans, the Middle East, Central Asia as well as Burma and Bangladesh[citation needed].

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.
