The first stage is the heating of the walls of the Tandoor by burning wood fire or charcoal fire inside the Tandoor. After the walls have absorbed all the energy of fire and were heated, the coal is removed from the tandoor (which has holes of the ash pan). At the second stage inside the hot tandoor (ceramic oven) are placed products such as meat, poultry, fish, bread, cakes, samosa, vegetables and more.
