“Not a lot of people have this oven”


“I grew up in an Indian neighborhood in Canada. I loved the food. When I moved here to Berlin I missed it. So I went to study in India. It took a lot of time to adapt the recipes.”

A real tandoori oven

“It’s a very complicated oven actually. The inside and the outside are made in India, but the electrical and exhaust components are made here in Germany. Then it’s all assembled in India.

Not a lot of people have this oven. It’s not easy to get, and it’s not easy to move around. It weighs more than 350kg. I bring it every week to Markthalle IX.

I learned to make the dough in India, but here the flour is different, and the temperature is different, so I have to modify it to work here.”
