Taoshobuddha

The word Taoshobuddha comes from three words, tao, sho, and Buddha. The word Tao was coined by the Chinese master, Lau Tzu. It means that which is and cannot be put into words. It is unknown and unknowable. It can only be e perienced and not e pressed in words. Its ma!nanimity cannot be condensed into finiteness. The word "ho implies, that which is #ast like the sky and deep like an ocean and carries within its womb a treasure. It also means one on whom the e istence showers its blessin!s. $nd lastly the word Buddha implies the %nli!htened &ne' one who has arri#ed home.

The temperatures in a tandoor can reach up to 1/)<7 -))oC =>))<F? and it is common for tandoor ovens to remain lit for long periods to maintain the high cooking temperature. The tandoor design is something of a transitional form !etween a makeshift earth oven and the hori#ontal7plan masonry oven. The oldest e6amples of a tandoor were found in the settlements of the ancient Indus @alley Civili#ation though earlier tandoor7type ovens have !een recovered in early7%arappan conte6ts on the Makran coast including the mound site of 8alakot 'akistan. In .anskrit the tandoor was referred to as kandu. The word tandoor comes from the Dari words tandAr and tannAr. "lso these are derived from very similar terms from other languages as 'ersian tanAr -., "rmenian tBonir -., "ra!ic tannAr - ., %e!rew = ?e.g. in 2eviticus ,C1 Turkish tandDr 9#!ek tandir "#eri tndir and Eurdish tendFr. %owever according to Dehkhoda 'ersian Dictionary the word originates from "kkadian tinFru and is mentioned as early as in the "kkadian 3pic of

Tandoori Cooking
Tandoori Cooking is a speciali#ed cooking style developed in Indian .u!7Continent and Middle 3ast. %owever very often people seem to think that tandoori to !e a recipe. 2ike many of the worldBs great dishes this is actually a cooking method that has !ecome synonymous with the food that is prepared. "ccordingly the word tandoori refers to a marinated meat or paneer cooked over an intense fire in a tandoor. " tandoor is a clay oven in which a hot fire is !uild. Marinated meats are lowered into the oven on long metal skewers and cooked in this smoky and e6tremely hot environment until done. The temperature is retained inside the tandoor as the traditional insulation prevents the emission of heat.

Cooking Iconic Tandoori Dishes

Tandoor is a clay oven large enough to hold a good si#ed fire and then all the food that gets placed in it. Generally restaurants have !uilt in tandoor that is dug into the ground or !uilt into an enclosure. The real secret is that heat can only escape it through to top. The direct heat of the fire is reflected !y the ceramic sides intensifying the heat and creating a cooking environment that easily reaches 0)) degrees Celsius. It is !uried or enclosed to hold in the heat and to keep anyone from coming in contact with the outside surface. The marinade used in any tandoori dish starts with thick plain yogurt. $hile this might sound a little strange this is actually perfect for marinating meats !ecause it has a natural acidity and it is thick so it holds to the meat well and keeps the her!s and spices in place. The flavor of the yogurt is so mild that you do not even taste it. Marinade is prepared !y com!ining plain yoghurt and a !lend of different spices. Then the desired item is mi6ed in the mi6ture so that marinade is well coated on all sides of the piece. ;ormally it is kept for some time for the flavors to infuse into. Tandoori dishes are usually red or yellow. $hatever !e the color there is a gla#e always this depends on

Master Chef Gas Oven Tandoor is an innovation in Tandoor technology. It is redefining your Tandoor 36perience through *D heating system in a simple cookware. The *D %eating .ystem is uniIue to maintain and circulate the heat throughout the Tandoor while maintaining the Optimum Temperature of 1/) o7-))o Celsius while the cooking process is on. The heat inside the Tandoor remains as high as !etween 1/)7-)) degree Celsius. It is com!ined with the Convection Convention and Hadiant heat transfer. "s a result the food is cooked very fast. In the process the 5uices and tastes are locked inside giving cooked moist food that tingles individual taste !uds.

The shape helps in ensuring that the heat is trapped and circulated in a manner that the food on the skewers is heated from all sides including inside !y the hot skewer.

heat inside the Gas Oven Tandoor instead circulates through Convection Convention and Hadiant transfer. Convection is the concerted collective movement of ensem!les of molecules within fluids. It happens only in fluids gases and rheids J =a non7molten solid that deforms !y viscous flow at least a thousand times faster than it would deform elastically under the same applied stress. The term which was coined !y .. $arren Carey in (>0* has the same Greek root as rheology the science of viscoelasticity and nonlinear flow?. Convection of mass cannot take place in solids since neither !ulk current flows nor significant diffusion can take place in solids. Diffusion of heat can take place in solids !ut is referred to separately in that case as heat conduction. " good model for convection is when you place a glass full of a liIuid on a gas !urner you then can feel the different levels of heat in the glass. Convective heat transfer is one of the ma5or modes of heat transfer and convection is also a ma5or mode of mass transfer in fluids. Convective heat and mass transfer take place through !oth diffusion J the random 8rownian motion of individual particles in the fluid J and !y advection in which matter or heat is

transported !y the larger7scale motion of currents in the fluid. In Master Chef Gas Oven Tandoor the !ottom tray with uniIue in and out vent system and the water inside helps in the transfer of heat through convection. Convention heat transfer is the normal system as we have conventional ovens. It is !ased on %@"C J %eat J @entilation and "ir Conditioning system. %@"C 7 heating ventilation and air conditioning is the technology of indoor and automotive environmental comfort. %@"C system design is a su!7discipline of mechanical engineering !ased on the principles of thermodynamics fluid mechanics and heat transfer. This is the techniIue that is used in your conventional ovens and the heating systems used in cold countries. 2ast is the Hadiant %eat .ystem. Hadiant heating systems supply heat directly to the floor or to panels in the wall or ceiling of a house. This helps in maintaining the heat inside for e6cellent cooking. This systems depend largely on radiant heat transfer 7 the delivery of heat directly from the hot surface to the people and o!5ects in the room via infrared

radiation. In case of Master Chef Gas Tandoor it provides the comfort cooling to the food placed inside the Tandoor. Hadiant heating is the effect you feel when you can feel the warmth of a hot stovetop element from across the room.

Barbecue -BB3. 7 In many places it means the same as grilling. For e6ample the "ustralian .hrimp on the 8ar!ecue. 8ut some people restrict the word to a low temperature roasting perfected in certain areas where 88K is used in this slow smoked sense grill then means a faster hotter cooking used for steaks ground meat and fish.

Meat is usually suspended on hooks or skewers inside a very hot clay oven. It may have !een marinated with spices and yogurt. "mokin! J This is a general term like grillingL e6posing the meat to smoke. If the smoke is cool it 5ust imparts flavor on the contrary if hot it also cooks the meat. 88K is a type of hot smoking. It is also a way of preserving food. From an elementary point of view the primary distinctions !etween grilling !ar!ecue and smoking are temperature and pro6imity to the source of heat. "s noted grilling is !asically performed !y placing food directly on top of the source of very high heat. ConseIuently raising the temperature of the meat happens Iuite Iuickly. The fuels used for grilling are gas woodMcharcoal or electric.

around ,,07,0) degrees. Thus the cooking time is greater than that reIuired !y grilling. The fuel used for !ar!ecue must include at least some wood as the flavor imparted !y smoke is an integral part of the process. Therefore the cooking temperature in 88K and Tandoor differs significantly and also the e6otic marinating process in Tandoori Dishes. "s a result items cooked in Tandoor are far tastier than !ar!ecued ones. "lthough it is individual choice still the Iuality of food could cooked in two ways differ significantly. In common parlance there is some am!iguity !etween grilling and 88King !ut connoisseurs will emphasi#e that they are two different things.
