We take you behind the scenes into the Indian Ocean kitchen to discover how some of our best loved foods are made.

By far, the most exciting item in an Indian kitchen is the tandoor. This huge clay oven weighs a ton and gets up to temperatures of 400°C!

It’s used to cook our beautiful manrinated tandoori meats in minutes, as well as the many Indian breads on offer.

A look behind the scenes: Fresh tandoori nan

Here we show you just how quickly nan breads are cooked in the tandoor, and how many can be cooking at once.

Using the tandoor is certainly a skill – would you want to stick your arm into one of these ovens?! You can easily spot a tandoori chef – he’ll have a bald, hairless arm to show for it!

Happy watching.
