In The West

The name of the Indian sub-continent creates various images in various people. It is a continent veiled in myth and mystery. A continent of contrasts. As a legacy of the empire days, Indian food has made inroads into British eating habits. But then there are people whose idea of Indian food is curry as a concoction made up of left overs with a spoon full of curry powder thrown in, perhaps a with a bit of chopped onion and apple, and some sultanas added for good measure! However here at CANNON TANDOORI RESTAURANT, we naturally think of and prepare Indian foods as they are prepared back home. We do it in the most authentic way, sparing nothing. The exotic fragrant, pungent Indian spices which were so eagerly sought out by the various Western countries (the Greeks, The Romans, the Portuguese, to name but a few) over the centuries are here at our disposal to offer the subtle sensuality that is the essence of Indian cuisine. Many of our dishes are cooked in a tandoor which is barrel shaped, open topped clay oven fired by charcoal. Breads can be baked in a tandoor, as one can roast lamb or chicken. Tandoori dishes are marinated in yogurt with appropriate herbs and spices and then cooked in tandoor, kept at a very high temperature with burning charcoal. The radiant heat thus generated together with smouldering charcoal does the cooking. This process seals in the goodness and the smouldering charcoal also lends the food a very special flavour.
