Hi Tandoornewbie,

Just dampen the dough with a little water, not too much though. The side of the tandoor should be very hot. You may find that a long sleeve cotton shirt will protect you from the heat. The naan should be slapped firmly to the side about midway. Keep your hooked tool handy. Best of luck,

They use a pillow with a tea towel as the final layer to slap it at my Indian Restaurant

Hi All,

Look at the information in post #16.

There are lots of interesting naan recipes earlier in the posts. The process is fairly simple....slap a piece of dough against a hot clay pot and watch it cook. Eventually you will learn the technique and success will follow.

Search for "gaddi" online so you can see what they are, or improvise. The technique is to "roll" the dough onto the clay as you slap it into place with the gaddi. I suppose you have to practice a little before the technique becomes natural. View YouTube videos of naan bread being made. Soon you will get the idea.

Cheers,

We are looking at adding a tandoor oven to our outdoor kitchen along with the WFO and the Big Green Egg.

Graham,

I am about to start building a tandoor oven too. Interested to share experience if you care. I've just started a thread for my planned build here (Tandoor oven build).
