Tandoor Oven on Wikipedia:

A tandoor is a cylindrical clay oven used in cooking and baking. The tandoor is used for cooking in India, Afghanistan, the Transcaucasus, the Balkans, the Middle East, Central Asiaas well as Pakistan and Bangladesh. The food is cooked over a hot charcoal fire or wooden fire . Temperatures in a tandoor can approach 480°C (900°F), and it is common for tandoor ovens to remain lit for long periods of time to maintain the high cooking temperature. The tandoor design is something of a transitional form between a makeshift earth oven and the horizontal-plan masonry oven, and is used almost exclusively for live-fire, radiant heat cooking.
