An oven made of bricks and clay, which is tall and cylindrical in shape. It is used to bake traditional tandoori dishes, such as skewered chicken. The flattened dough of the traditional naan (or nan) breads is also baked in these ovens by slapping the dough on the hot inside walls of the oven. The oven contains a flamed bottom, fueled by wood, coal, dung or gas, which produces a very high heat.
