The Oven specializes in Northern Indian Cuisine which includes a unique style of cooking in a clay oven called the Tandoor. Northern Indian cuisine, perhaps the richest and most lavish of the country, features Moghul cuisine which derives its reputation from the superb variety of its lamb dishes. Indian cooking incorporates a vast array of spices such as cumin, turmeric, coriander, cloves, cardamom, cayenne pepper, garlic and ginger and many more. Each dish has a distinct flavor and combination of spices which makes each entree individual. Many of the entrees are cooked in the Tandoor which is a special clay oven that uses an open flame. Chicken, shrimp, and lamb are cooked on skewers. A variety of breads are hand made by our chefs. Chicken, shrimp and fish are first marinated in a yogurt and spice mixture and then cooked quickly in the high temperatures of the Tandoor to seal in the rich flavors and assure the tenderness of the meat. A typical North Indian meal would consist of paratha or poori (unleavened flat breads), dals, curries that are mild and made in ghee, thick, creamy dals, vegetables seasoned with yogurt or pomegranate powder, and greens spinach and lots of greens like spinach and mustard greens cooked with paneer, north Indian pickles, fresh tomato, mint, cilantro chutneys and yogurt raitas.
