These rocks used in tandoor due to presence of pores.

There are some traders of tandoor rocks in Old Delhi.
Or ask your local dhaba wallahs for some.
If they have a tandoor then they are bound to have tandoor rocks too.
I am somewhat positive about that though I haven't asked any myself.

Please can you post a closeup? Looks quite similar to what Sreeram uses in his heavenly tanks.
