Electric oven will cook cake, cookies, and suitable pizza and rotis. But rotis and pizza will turn out better in electric tandoor, which heats much higher but is not suitable for cakes and baked goods. Basically the higher heat and smaller size of the tandoor (which maintains a high heat) will make crispy on the outside, softer on the inside breads and dough, whereas oven cooks at lower temperature for longer to create an even consistency.

http://www.answers.com/topic/oven… The above site will give you a very good explanation of electric ovens From small roadside eateries to sophisticated restaurants and hotels, 'tandoori' food is considered mouth-watering. And, with the electric 'tandoor' enabling smoke-free, time saving and convenient cooking. Thus, popular 'tandoori' dishes can now be easily prepared at home.

The 'tandoor' or traditional clay oven has been an integral part of Indian kitchens, especially in the northern parts. The traditional 'tandoor' - a clay oven fired by charcoal, has gone in for a major face-lift during the last decade, with the advent of electric 'tandoors.' While the time-consuming traditional 'tandoor' has been a misfit in the urban Indian homes, its modern version seems to be thriving.

Arguably, the most versatile kitchen appliance, "The 'tandoor' can make 'rotis', 'naans', pizzas, 'paneer tikka', 'kebabs' and barbeques, among a host of other haute cuisines; and grill vegetables too," offers Satish Mashinde a dealer. "It has an amazing utility value! Unlike an electric oven or a microwave, I think electric 'tandoors' are just perfect for urban Indian homes. At least, I know that I will be using my electric 'tandoor' for more than just warming food!" reasons professor Shruti Chauhan.

The new-age 'tandoors' seem to be a rage among health buffs, especially those working towards slimmer waistlines! "The most remarkable thing about my electric 'tandoor' is that not only are its delicacies appetising, they are also oil-free and subsequently, fat-free," maintains entrepreneur Damini Dutta, who recently bought the much-talked-about Sanjeev Kapoor Tandoor.

Unlike the traditional 'tandoors', where installation requires special skills, installing the modern-day 'tandoors' is totally hassle-free. "Earlier, the clay pot had to be properly insulated or else there was the fear of inadequate generation of heat inside thus, spoiling its delicacy," informs businessman Maheshwar Rana, whose family back in Rajasthan has been making 'tandoors' since the last four generations. With the electric 'tandoor', there is no such cause of despair. "While looking for a good buy, one just needs ensure that the heating elements, body structure and the insulation are proper," offers Sanjay Dabria, another dealer.

"An electric 'tandoor' is a simple household appliance. Armed with a one-year warranty, the electric 'tandoor' can serve you without problems for a good ten years or so," claims Vishal Vasa, a Mumbai-based dealer.

"At the most, the heating coil may get spoilt, say after six to seven years. But then, the coil can easily be replaced though for about Rs 100 - Rs 200," informs homemaker Swati Kher. Electric tandoors range from Rs 1,500 to Rs 2000, depending on the make and the service warranty period. http://www1.timesofindia.indiatimes…

Tandoor-for tandoori roti,naan Electronic oven-pizza,cakes

A tandoor is the traditional Indian oven made of special clay. All tandoori food is grilled on a charcoal at very high temperatures. Practically no fat is used in tandoori preparations. But these days you do get metal tandoors that can used on gas stoves. The tandoor is also known by another name of 'Bhatti' in India.The tandoor is currently a very important fixture in many Indian restaurants around the world. Food cooked in a tandoor retains all the juices and taste inside and hence is considered very healthy.

Electronic oven is a appliance that cooks food by means of high-frequency electromagnetic radiation. A microwave oven is a relatively small, boxlike oven that raises the temperature of food by subjecting it to a high-frequency electromagnetic field. The microwaves are absorbed by water, fats, sugars, and certain other molecules, whose resulting vibrations produce heat. The heating thus occurs inside the food, without warming the surrounding air. This process greatly reduces cooking time; baking and other tasks that may require an hour or more in a conventional oven can be completed in minutes in a microwave oven.

Tandoori Roti, or Naan: Good Quality Atta Missi Roti: 75% Atta, 25% Besan Pizza: 100% All purpose flour with high protien content Cake: Cake flour, its not same as All purpose flour, or buy cake mix There is no appliance called electric Tandoor. If someone is selling such an animal, dont waste your money on it. You can buy Natural gas or Propane gas Tandoors in UK, Canada, or some online suppliers in United States.

Dear Sangeetha,

You have the recipes to alltypes of Rotis and Naans here in this site.

Turn your oven into a tandoor

To mimic tandoor baking in a regular electric or gas oven, you'll need a baking stone or some unglazed quarry tiles placed on an oven rack. The larger the baking surface, the better. The stone or tiles should cover the rack with a one-inch gap around the edge to let hot air circulate.

Clay pots are nowadays being used for at home Tandoori cooking. They are found in a variety of sizes in many markets in Mexico. When cooking with clay, the pot must be soaked in cold water for at least 15 minutes. If it hasn't been used before, it should be soaked for at least 30 minutes. During the soaking, the terra cotta absorbs moisture which is released when the pot is in the oven, thus creating a moist cooking atmosphere. The clay pot must be placed in a cold oven and heated gradually. Set the temperature once the pot is inside. Never place in a preheated oven.

In an electric tandoor you can only grill the food. But in an electric oven you can bake, grill, roast and toast .
