An intriguing but little-known benefit of eating tandoori dishes is their high levels of a nutrient called selenium. Although some people might not have heard of it, selenium is an essential micronutrient found in many foods. Studies on this nutrient show that it has the potential to promote healthy skin and improve immune function and prevent unfavorable health conditions such as alcoholism and cancer.
The tandoori cooking style uses a tandoor oven to cook the food, typically a tiny clay oven with a clay lid shaped like an inverted cone. The food is cooked on skewers at high temperatures, so the nutrients in the food are retained very well. Paneer, chicken, lamb and fresh cheese are most commonly used when making tandoori dishes.
Tandoori dishes are popular throughout India, a very prominent component of Punjabi cuisine, and popular in Bangladesh. The exact origin of the tandoori cooking style is unknown, but it could be an adaptation made by Indian chefs to traditional Persian grilling techniques. However, if you have traveled to the Scandivania region, here are the restaurants which serve tandoori dishes in Europe:
1. Punjab Tandoori
Punjab Tandoori restaurant offers a wide selection of dishes, including the famous Butter Garlic Naan and Chicken Tikka Masala. Their other favorites include Chicken Karahi, Lamb Keema, and Shrimp Biryani. While each dish is delicious, they find that they taste even better with one of their traditional Indian desserts.
They offer traditional Indian sweets like Gulab Jamun, Rasmalai, and Gajar Halwa. All of them are easily recognizable by their classic flavors and appearance. They pair well with some Green Tea or Mango Lassi if you are looking for something sweet to accompany your meal.

They are there to help you choose a dish that suits your tastes and dietary needs and help you navigate the extensive menu.

That can result from ingesting an Indian dish that has been improperly prepared or poorly seasoned. Fortunately, Punjab Tandoori takes pride in their spices, but they do not use them as a gimmick. They complement their dishes perfectly, and they want to share that with you. Every dish on their menu is created with love, and they want to share that love with you through their food.
