Tandoori - Our breads are referred to as "tandoori" style because they are baked in a special tandoori oven.

Tandoori and baking - Made of clay, this authentic oven has been used for thousands of years in India to make tandoori naan. The original process of making naan in a tandoori oven involves slapping dough directly on to the side walls of the oven, heated to a high heat over charcoal or wood, until a slightly crisp golden brown crust is formed.

Hand stretched - Each piece of naan and roti are hand stretched to ensure the characteristic bubbly texture and body of our breads are not lost by heavy processing.

Tear drop shape - The original shape of naan formed by being slapped on the sides of the tandoori oven.

Methi - is defined in English as "fenugreek"; this pungent and flavorful herb is used to create some of our most unique products with a taste that cannot be substituted.
