Diwali is all about family and friends. It’s about the conversation, laughter, and bonding.  Playing the perfect host can often hinder you from enjoying such experiences with your loved ones. Making rotis on demand over the tawa during your Diwali dinner can be quite a challenge. Don’t keep scrambling back and forth from the kitchen to cater to everyone’s roti whims! With Rotimatic, it only takes 90 seconds to make a roti, and it can make 20 in 1 go! You don’t need to leave your conversation every 5 minutes to ensure everyone is well fed. There will always be enough rotis and minimal wastage.

Cooking is only half of the hard work. Hosting a Diwali party also means plenty of planning, decorating, entertaining and cleaning and with all the colors, food and noise, it is a completely immersive sensory experience. A celebration of this scale can be as exhausting as it is exciting. It could take days or even a week to completely recover from all the exhilarating activities.

Post-Diwali recovery requires time to unwind and relax from all the planning and jarring external stimuli. What better to aid you than Rotimatic? You will be able to spend time at home alone, unfettered by the thoughts of prepping an effortless breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Just press a button and know that your next meal will be taken care off! Click here to know about more such interesting recipes

Flatbreads are the the earliest form of bread. Simply put, flatbread is an unleavened bread, which is made without yeast. Flour, water, and salt are the main ingredients. It’s rolled out flat and cooked. It’s origins seem to be in ancient Egypt but many cultures have their versions of flatbread. From roti in India and the Indian subcontinent to the tortilla in Central and South America, flatbreads are the staple in many parts of the world. You may have also tried the Jewish matzo, Middle Eastern pita or Scandinavian crispbreads, because some form of flatbread is produced just about everywhere. By the way, pizza dough is a type of flatbread, as well!

When we designed Rotimatic, we wanted it to be a solution not just for rotis but a flatbread making platform for families across the world.

The journey has just begun and Rotimatic has served over a million rotis in kitchens across US and Singapore. We are now working on Indian flatbreads such as poori, missi roti, millet rotis with jowar, bajara and even tortillas. We realise the Indian palate is diverse and adventurous so we have already started working on more types of flatbreads. Beginning with Pooris!

Pooris are the food of festivals. Exuberance of life!

This is a beta version of how Rotimatic will enable pooris:

Poori Ingredients:

  • 3 Cups of Flour
  • 1/3 cups of Semolina flour
  • 1teaspoon of salt
  • Pinch of sugar for the golden brown colour

Instructions:

  1. Mix 3 cups of flour and 1/3 cups of semolina flour in a bowl
  2. Add 1 teaspoon salt into rotimatic water container
  3. Fill the flour prepared in step 1 into the rotimatic flour container
  4. Power on the machine, adjust the menu to the correct flour setting, select the amount of poori you want to make and press PLAY
  5. Fresh flattened dough will be “HALF” sent out of the rotimatic machine
  6. Remove the flattened dough IMMEDIATELY from the rotimatic machine
  7. Deep fry the fresh flattened dough in hot oil till its puffed and golden brown
  8. Remove fried poori from oil and leave to drain – standing
  9. Poori is ready to be served!
