The warm weather made me want South Asian for dinner, so I headed to Jasmine Market, a little Burmese-Indian spot on Sepulveda in Culver City.  It’s always a tough decision between the chicken biryani and chicken tandoori.  Tonight, I went with a plate of glowing, boneless chicken tandoori, a fine choice to wind down a sizzling day like today.  While I was there, the kind folks at Jasmine let me peek into their scorching hot tandoor to watch long skewers of chicken roast next to frisbees of naan, erupting with blisters.  What a fantastic cooking vessel.  Kinda genius.  Tandoors are hot (literally)!
