The delicately spiced meats and vegetables are marinated in a paste of yogurt and spices before being threaded on skewers and quickly baked, giving them a sublime smoky flavor. Accompaniments to the meats are the much leavened and unleavened breads (Nan, Parathas) also baked in the Tandoor. For the Tandoor dishes check the Tandoor section of our menu.
