Naan bread is the most popular type of Indian bread. Naan is traditionally made in a Tandoori oven. Tandoor is a huge clay pot with a fire pit inside. The fire is created by burning charcoal in the bottom of the clay pot. The Naan bread dough is stuck to the inner sides of the clay pot. The heat from the burning charcoal cooks the bread and gives it a smoky flavor.
