At Zimplistic, we are working towards making healthy eating easier by enabling users to cook healthy roti with Rotimatic with convenience via technology for their families.

With heartfelt appreciation and encouragement from our users, our motivation enhances three folds.

Despite living in a technology-driven world, a lot of us still depend on the conventional ways of cooking. 

We thank our user Naeem Qureshi for his touching message and speaking aloud about the age-old chore of making rotis and recognizing our efforts, as an organization to challenge gender stereotypes and simplify lives. 

It is true that for generations, it has been the women of the house who have been performing kitchen duties including roti-making without any complaints.

Roti-making is a time-consuming and tedious task, yet this laborious process is often undermined and not much talked about.

We applaud the women who juggle between home and work and balance it out on every front be it professional or personal. 

60,000 homes have already adopted a healthy lifestyle with a healthy choice of Rotimatic.

Our vision, as Zimplistic is to bring about this change in every household by bringing Rotimatic to every kitchen, one family at a time to change the roti making technique for everyone.

Rotimatic is designed to last for a long time! However, like any other electronic device, proper usage and maintenance are required to ensure that it functions without any hiccups. Taking care of your Rotimatic is easier than you think and we are here to show you how! We’ve listed three common mistakes that you can easily avoid when using Rotimatic.

Using butter, ghee or liquid milk with your Rotimatic.

The most common mistake when using a Rotimatic is adding melted butter or ghee in your oil container. Butter and ghee are solid in room temperature and will harden and get stuck in your Rotimatic pipes! This stops your Rotimatic from functioning well. Ghee and butter can be added on your rotis after they are cooked! If you are still keen on experimenting with oil, Rotimatic is compatible with most oils/fats that are liquid at room temperature. You can find the list here (http://bit.ly/RMrecommendedoil).

Using milk in your water container will have the same effect on the pipes. Milk may clump and dry in the tubes. Having milk residue will adversely affect roti quality.  Using water is the best option for your Rotimatic. If you’d like to have some milk in your rotis, you may add two teaspoons of milk powder into your flour container instead!

Adding chopped vegetables to your Rotimatic flour container.

Similar to the previous point, the flour container needs to have proper ingredients for it to make  a roti. Rotimatic requires different settings for different flours due to the variances in the protein and starch content between each brand. This affects the viscosity of the dough ball that Rotimatic will knead. Adding chopped vegetables to your flour container will wet your flour and disrupt the settings.  Large chunks of vegetables may also cause flour tunnel blockages!

This does not mean that you can’t be creative or experiment with your rotis! You can play around with your flour and add up to 10% of your flour level of dry, powdered ingredients. For instance, you can throw in powdered spinach or beetroot to your flour mix to make colorful and nutrition packed rotis! Herbs and spices that are dried also contribute well to the taste, texture and look of your rotis.   

Use Powdered Ingredients and not whole vegetables

Not cleaning your Rotimatic properly.

Like a food processor, it’s essential to clean Rotimatic after use! Cleaning is the most crucial part of Rotimatic maintenance. Many issues can be avoided if you clean your Rotimatic thoroughly! For instance, having crumbs in your pans will cause your Rotimatic to stall with issues like folded rotis or undercooked rotis. Not cleaning your dough cup and stirrer will affect the quality of your roti. Cleaning the container slots are also crucial as having protein or sugar residue may lead to bugs and mold!
