A tandoor (clay oven) is mainly used in Central Asia for baking bread. Usually it is standing free, but it can also be embedded in the ground. In a tandoor you can bake Samsy (stuffed dumplings with meat, pumpkin, spinach or cheese) oder or shashlik (meat skewers). The design and size of the tandoor may vary according to local traditions in Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Sintiang and other areas. In 2016, we built an Uzbek tandoor in Fergana style on the Thonmi site.
