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?

From us to you, Happy Diwali.

We cannot allow years of innovation to be dumbed down into acronyms and gimmicks. It’s time we talked about what really made a smart kitchen.

Artificial intelligence, or A.I. as it is universally and affectionately known, is an area of computer science that emphasizes the creation of intelligent machines that work and react like humans. Robots, essentially, and the belief that they could one day perform tasks like and for humans, is the crux of artificial intelligence.

The Internet of Things, or IoT, is pretty much as it sounds. It’s the marvel of your things, or appliances, being embedded with electronics, software, sensors, or even connectivity, to enable these things to connect and exchange data. This creates opportunities for more direct integration of the physical world, into computer-based systems. In layman, the connectivity of your Rotimatic allows for cutting-edge features like remote troubleshooting, and software upgrades sent straight to your unit. Cool, huh?


Remember the times mummy would get up an hour earlier to prepare your breakfast, or join up with the rest of the family on the dinner table much after everyone else is well fed? It gets labeled a “responsibility” for mummies to feed others before they are fed themselves. As noble and heartwarming as that is, don’t you think it’s time we offered her an alternative that freed her of such demanding expectations?

Measuring, mixing, kneading, flattening, puffing, and then delighting – it’s a tough job description. And to do it daily, and more than once a day, it gets tiring. Us as humans, with access to new and perpetually innovative technology, could make this task easier, surely?

Here’s where A.I. and IoT charm and surprise – to take over the task previously only you (or mummy) could perform, and to perform better. From measuring to puffing, it’s all distilled down to a push of a button – emphasizing on the “automated” definition of the Rotimatic.

Automatic Rotimatic Technology

“Automation” is a term birthed from “automatic” which perfectly encapsulates the A.I. and IoT capabilities. The right amount of flour and water? Automated. The resulting dough ball? Perfect, and automated. Flattening the dough ball, heating the roti inside and out so as to achieve a perfect puff? 90 seconds, perfect, and automated.

Perhaps it’s not being celebrated quite like the first washing machine was, or the first coffee-maker, because the concept of a roti-make has existed for a while now. The idea to simplify roti-making has been toyed with, but never quite automated. There is no appliance in the world that learns your preferred roti settings and performs real-time dough ball correction. And more than that, it’s an appliance that gets better with time – with every new recipe software upgrade sent straight to your hardware through Internet connectivity.


The Rotimatic has been a sensation amongst the South Asian diaspora in the UK. If not just making their days easier by pressing a button as compared to ancient traditions of mixing the dough and cooking it on a rock, it gives them the taste of home.

We understand the hesitancy and reluctance to leave something as pure as the taste of mom’s rotis to a modern-day robot, but it is important we keep up with the times. Socializing has become effortless with social media, transportation has reached new heights with the likes of Uber and Tesla.

You could argue food has gotten more convenient, but at the cost of health. Packed and frozen food from supermarkets, or a variety of delivery options for dinner – they’re both meant to provide an easier mean of consuming food and completely takes away the fun and inspiration that comes from cooking a meal in the first place. Isn’t that what a kitchen is for?


Along with the UK, the Rotimatic is available in 11 other countries including USA, Canada, Australia, Canada, Singapore, Oman, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, and Dubai.

While most of us often pair rotis with dal and sabzi (all time comfort food!), the humble roti is more versatile than we can imagine. From a platter of kebabs to a healthy fruity dessert, rotis are perfect accompaniment to many dishes.

One fine afternoon, the Rotimatic team got together with some foodies in San Francisco to have fun with rotis. We cooked up a perfect light meal of healthy appetizers and dips to compliment the Rotimatic Rotis.
Since the guests were not familiar with the traditional roti-making process, Pranoti (the co-founder and CTO of Zimplistic) gave them a quick preview of what it takes! The guests took a stab at it as well and sure enough opted to work with Rotimatic rotis instead. Guests were divided into small teams to prepare a variety of internationally inspired tapas recipes.  Once the cooking was finished, everyone shared dishes with each other cocktail party style.

Savouries included:
– Chicken Tikka Kebabs with Tamarind Chutney
– Roti “Pizzas” with Seasonal Toppings
– Roasted Lamb Skewers with Pistachio, Mint, and Yogurt
– Lentil Keema made with Indian Spice and Cilantro Chutney
– Paneer and Broccoli Masala with Fresh Curry Leaves


The dessert was most special!
– Sweet Roti, Cardamon Creme Anglaise, Mango and Coconut

If you’re itching to try some unique recipes yourself, here’s the recipe of the delicious dessert:

SWEET ROTI, CARDAMON CRÈME ANGLAISE, MANGO AND COCONUT

Recipe: Serves 10

Cardamom Crème Anglaise:
2 cups whole milk
2 cups heavy cream

Combine the egg yolks and sugar in a medium bowl and beat, using a hand mixer, until pale, light yellow and thick, about 3-5 minutes. Slowly, add half the cardamom milk mixture to the yolk mixture and beat on low until blended. Add the second half of the milk mixture. Transfer the mixture back to a saucepan and cook over low heat until it reaches 160oF or when the mixture coats the back of a spoon. Quickly remove from heat (It will turn to scrambled eggs if it goes over this temperature) and strain immediately into a bowl placed on an ice bath.

Coconut and Mango Topping:
2 ripe mangoes, diced
1/3 cup unsweetened coconut, toasted 1 lime, zested and juiced
2 teaspoons sugar

Mango Topping: In a medium mixing bowl, add mango, coconut, sugar, lime zest and juice, toss and set aside.
