5 Exciting Ways To Use Your Rotimatic

Getting tired of making rotis every day? Of course not...who could be?

But, that doesn’t mean you wouldn’t mind some variety once in a while.

Well, we’ve got some great news for you. Your Rotimatic can make a whole lot more than just rotis for Indian meals.

CONTINUE READING

If you are reading this, you must have considered buying a Rotimatic. You would have probably also wondered why Rotimatic is so expensive and why it's price is higher than other kitchen appliances. 

And is buying it worth the money?   

This blog will discuss what makes the Rotimatic relatively more expensive than other everyday household appliances. We will explain how it will ultimately save not just time but also money. 

 

Not a machine but a robot

The roti-making process is pretty complicated for a machine. Rotimatic is the world's first roti-making robot. It mixes and makes dough, kneads it, makes a dough ball, flattens & then cooks well puffed and perfectly roasted rotis, one every 90 seconds. 

  

The Rotimatic has 10 motors, 15 intelligent sensors, and a 32-bit processor that makes nearly 300 parts work seamlessly together. And that's just the hardware; Rotimatic is an AI-powered machine that mimics how a human would make rotis.   

"Best thing since sliced bread, a roti-making machine"  

The Wallstreet Journal   

Compared to other relatively expensive kitchen equipment, say, the dishwasher, the scale of Rotimatic's sophistication becomes clear. A typical dishwasher has two motors, a few sensors, and a few functional parts powered by a simple microprocessor.   

An AI-powered robot that mimics humans   

It is tough to make a robot that makes rotis, but that did not deter Rotimatic CEO and co-founder Pranoti Nagarkar, an engineer. They spent eight years creating and perfecting this fully automatic roti maker. Most of the tech for this kind of machine had to be invented from scratch, which led the inventor to get 37 patents registered.   

And we've not even started talking about the brains behind all that fantastic hardware. Rotimatic's AI-powered brain learns and gets better with data from every flatbread made. It is also a truly connected IoT device that, once connected to Wi-Fi, upgrades itself with the latest software updates and can be repaired remotely over the internet. 

Over the years, companies in China, India, Bangladesh, and Pakistan have tried to reverse engineer the Rotimatic. Their attempts have been unsuccessful because they cannot copy the AI and the ML that makes the Rotimatic so good at making rotis.

Launched in 2014 to an overwhelming reception worldwide 

The Rotimatic was launched in 2013 and immediately gained praise from users. Zimplistic Pte Ltd, makers of the Rotimatic, had a turnover of USD 20M in the first year of launch. The demand was so high that Rotimatic sold out in early 2015

"The world's most popular food robot"  

The Spoon 

Nine years later, in 2022, 160M+ rotis have been made in more than 100,000 homes across 18 countries. Large waiting lists of people are registered worldwide for the Rotimatic launch in their country.   

Rotimatic helps pay itself off in the first year of ownership 

Technology isn't the only thing people appreciate about the Rotimatic. It is an investment, and in return, you eat hot, fresh homemade rotis instead of factory-made frozen rotis, which is good for you and your family.  

Compared to buying frozen rotis, Rotimatic helps you end up saving money.  

Here is a simple chart calculating the yearly spending on popular frozen roti brands in the US.  

Assumption: A family of 4 eats 20 Rotis daily and has roti five days a week.

If you regularly eat rotis, you will spend more than USD 2000, which is around how much you would spend on the Rotimatic. 

 

Fresh homemade rotis are much healthier (and tastier) than frozen rotis  

Factory-made frozen rotis have unhealthy ingredients like margarine (soy - palm oil-based unsaturated fats), sugar, salt, raising agents, emulsifiers, and preservatives.  

With Rotimatic, you know your food is free of adulteration and harmful preservatives. You have total control over what you are feeding your family.

Here are some creative recipes created by Rotimatic owners and shared in the Rotimatic Owner's Group on Facebook.  

Rotimatic keeps going for years and years

More than three years ago, we rolled out a neat feature on the Rotimatic app - a dashboard for users to track their usage.  

The users could track how many rotis they've made and the time they saved by not spending it all in the kitchen. Here is a table based on such data.  

  

5 days a week 

52 weeks a year 

  

Time to make 20 Rotis per day  

Weekly (mins)  

Yearly (mins)  

Hours yearly 

30 minutes  

150  

7800  

130  

 

The above table again assumes that a family of four eats 20 Rotis a day. You can see that the one who makes rotis can save around 130 hours of their time, not counting the effort it takes to make rotis every day.  

 

What do our customers say

Rotimatic has finally solved a problem that has existed for ages. It makes well puffed, perfectly roasted, and delicious rotis at the touch of a button.  

It has allowed people to enjoy the perfect meal without any trouble. No wonder they have integrated this robot into their kitchens and made it a part of their family.  

Kids, adults, and the elderly, everyone loves Rotimatic!

The heart of India lies in its diversity. 

An exhibition of this diversity demonstrates itself in a variety of forms — the patchwork of geographical conditions, the motley crew of languages, the myriad cultural and spiritual beliefs, and of course, the innumerable cuisines that dot the length and breadth of the country. 

[Infographic] Flatbreads From Different States Of India

It is to this diversity that we owe the joyous innovation of our flatbreads. From the naan of the north to the parotta of the south, from the thepla of the west to the luchi of the east; flatbreads are not only a staple of the Indian diet. They are a fundamental building block, the cornerstone of our daily meals. 

Here are some of the flatbreads that make homes and hearts happy across the subcontinent! Presented to you by Rotimatic.

Western Indian Flatbreads

North Indian Flatbreads

Eastern India Flatbreads

South India Flatbreads

Flatbreads of Western India

Puran Poli

📍 Maharashtra

What is Puran Poli?

A flatbread (poli) stuffed with a sweet lentil stuffing (puran). The ingredients for the stuffing vary from region to region. 

Best enjoyed: Warm or room temperature, with katachi amti (a thin spicy dal), batata bhaji (potato dish), saffron flavored milk, or just ghee. 

Origin of Puran Poli

One of the earliest mentions of puran poli can be found in the text Manasollasa, written by Someshvara — a king who ruled Bidar, near modern-day Hyderabad, in the 12th century. An early recipe is also recorded in the 14th century Telugu encyclopaedia Manucharitra, which was assembled by the poet Allasani Peddanna. 

Fun fact: Cousins of puran poli include puran puri or vedmi in Gujarat, holige or obbattu in Karnataka, and bobbattu or baksham in Andhra Pradesh.

Thepla

📍 Gujarat

What is Thepla?

An unleavened flatbread made with wheat flour, yoghurt, and spices, cooked on a tawa. 

Best enjoyed with: Yoghurt, chhotela bateta (dry potato dish), and chhundo (sweet mango pickle) 

Origin of Thepla

The mythology behind the invention of thepla is that it was made to sustain travelling Gujarati merchants who found it tough to find vegetarian food during their journeys. 

Fun fact: While methi theplas are the most popular, theplas are also made with dudhi (bottlegourd), bajra (pearl millet), besan (gram flour), and more!

Bhakri

 

📍 Western India

What is Bhakri?

A coarse flatbread made using a dough of millet-based flours like jowar or bajra flour, bhakris, cooked on a tawa. 

Best enjoyed: Hot or room temperature, with a variety of accompaniments depending on the region. Yoghurt, pithla (gram flour porridge), thecha (a type of chutney), pickles, baingan bharta (mined roasted eggplant dish), sev bhaji (deep-fried chickpea strands in a spicy curry), green leafy preparations, or even just a chilli and raw onion. 

Origin of Bhakri

Not much is known about the origin of bhakri. However, in the aftermath of the Green Revolution, landowning castes began to cultivate cash crops like rice and wheat, while the cultivation and consumption of millets were left to Dalit and Bahujan peoples. As such, bhakris are considered a staple in their households, offering farmworkers sustenance for long, difficult workdays. 

Fun fact: Bhakris can be made without oil!

Poee

📍 Goa

What is Poee?

A bread made using half-maida (all-purpose flour) and half-whole wheat flour, poee is round, soft, and has a pocket. The dough is fermented for two days, after which it is rolled into a ball, flattened, and baked in a wood-fired oven. 

Best enjoyed: At breakfast, lunch or dinner, whether to mop up Goan gravy dishes, accompanying dry savoury foods, or even stuffed with sausages! 

Origin of Poee

Considered a product of the Portuguese colonisation of Goa, the fermentation process originally utilised toddy – the local coconut palm wine – which over the centuries, through commercialisation, has been replaced by regular yeast. Poee-making is considered the craft of traditional bakers called poders, passed on from generation to generation. 

Fun fact: A popular home meal in Goan households is ross poee — it includes omelette, xacuti, and poee.

Taftan

📍 North-West India

What is Taftan?

A leavened bread, made from a dough of flour, milk, yoghurt, and eggs, and then baked in a tandoor (clay oven) till golden brown. Saffron and cardamom are used as flavourings. 

Best enjoyed: Hot and fresh, topped with poppy seeds, and served alongside Persian dishes or gravies. Its slight sweetness makes it a great accompaniment to spicy food. 

Origin of Taftan

The root of ‘taftoon’ is in the Persian word ‘tafan’, which translates to heating, burning, or kindling. The study of Iranian epics like Shahname has revealed that the word ‘taftan’ has been in use for centuries. In that time, the bread has travelled from Persia via Pakistan (where it is also popular!) to India. 

Fun fact: Taftan is considered an aristocratic bread due to the richness and cost of its ingredients!

Flatbreads of North India

Chapati

📍 All over India but most popular in the north

What is a Chapati?

An unleavened flatbread made with a soft dough of wheat flour and water, cooked on a tawa on both sides. In certain parts of the country, chapati is half-cooked on the tawa and then puffed up directly over a flame. 

Best enjoyed: Hot and freshly made, with almost anything — vegetable dishes, gravies, curries, sweet accompaniments like aamras (pureed mango dessert) or shrikhand, or even jam! 

Origin of the Chapati

Invented in the subcontinent, chapati has since travelled all over the world; eaten as a daily staple in India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, East Africa, the Middle East, and even as far as the Caribbean. 

Fun fact: Chapati has different names all over the world, including roti, rotli, phulka, chapo, and roshi!

Naan 

an animated image showing a plate with north indian flatbread naan along with some salad and curry

📍 All over North India

What is a Naan?

An oven-baked or tawa-fried flatbread using fermented dough. 

Best enjoyed with: Mughal and North frontier cuisine — keema; kebabs; rich, aromatic gravies; and more. 

Origin of Naan in India

When yeast first arrived in India from Egypt, naan was invented through experimentation using indigenous clay ovens – tandoors – to serve up the flaky, golden flatbread. The Indo-Persian poet Amir Kushrao was the first to mention naan in his notes, a record that dates back to 1300 BCE! 

Fun fact: Because of the kneading process and the use of fermented dough, naan was a delicacy enjoyed primarily by royals, nobility and the rich. 

Khamiri Roti

 

📍 Delhi 

What is Khamiri Roti?

A leavened flatbread that owes its spongey, chewy texture to yeast. Traditionally baked in a tandoor (clay oven), it is known for its smoky, tangy flavour — almost like an Indian version of sourdough. 

Best enjoyed with: Mughlai dishes like kebabs, tikkas, korma, mutton nihari, and bhuna kheema. 

Origin of Khamiri Roti In India

Khamiri roti dates back to the Mughal period of Indian history. Considered a staple of that era, making this flatbread was initially the traditional occupation of two communities – Naan Bais and Bhatiyaras. Today, it is mostly found in the streets of Old Delhi, and is a regularly consumed flatbread in Muslim households across the city. 

Fun fact: While the Bhatiyara community has all but faded into obscurity, Naan Bais still make and sell Khamiri roti alongside several Mughal flatbreads like laal roti, doodh cheeni ki roti, parat-daar paratha, and kulcha. 

Eastern India Flatbreads>Eastern India Flatbreads

Luchi

📍 Bengal

What is luchi?

A deep-fried flatbread made with maida (all-purpose flour). 

Best enjoyed with: Aloor dum (curry-based potato dish), kosha mangsho (gravy-based goat meat dish), jhola gud (liquid date palm jaggery) and more. 

Origin of Luchi

Not much is known about the invention of the luchi, but it is a much-expounded flatbread in east India. Litterateurs and writers have over the last two centuries waxed eloquent on its moon-like form — or written about its role as a marker for socioeconomic differences. 

Fun fact: Because it took premium ingredients like ghee and maida to make a luchi, it is considered a flatbread for the affluent.

Kemenya Roti

📍 Nagaland

What is Kemenya Roti?

An unfermented flatbread made of sticky rice dough flattened between the palms and deep-fried until golden brown, made either crispy or soft and chewy based on preference. 

Best enjoyed: Dusted with powdered sugar. 

Origin of Kemenya Roti

There is not much by way of recorded history when it comes to this Naga delicacy, however, it is considered a staple during tea time. 

Fun fact: This flatbread is often prepared in advance and sold in local markets in Nagaland!

Janta Roti

📍 Odisha

What is Janta Roti?

A flatbread made using a dough of flour cooked in milk or water until sticky. Once this dough cools down, it is kneaded, balled, flattened, and then then fried, baked, or steamed. 

Best enjoyed: Warm, with dalma (daal made of split chick peas, raw papaya and vegetables), santula (curry made of potatoes, raw papaya and brinjals cooked in raw milk), paaya (goat legs soup) or a vegetable stew. 

Origin of Janta Roti

Not much is known about the origin of janta roti, however, because it is made using a precooked dough, janta roti ends up being double-cooked. This makes it a preferred flatbread for very young children and the elderly, as it is easy to chew and digest. 

Fun fact: Although rice is a staple in Odisha, janta roti is a well-known recipe passed down from generation to generation!

Arsa

 

📍 Jharkhand 

What is Arsa?

A fried bread that is sweet — made with a dough of powdered rice and jaggery syrup, which is then deep-fried. Alternatively, sugar syrup can be used as well. 

Best enjoyed: Hot and fresh! 

Origin or Arsa

Not much is known about the origin of arsa, however, it's a traditional Christmas bread of the indigenous tribal peoples of Jharkhand. 

Fun fact: Dry fruits, coconut and sesame seeds are common additions to the dough.

South Indian Flatbreads

Appam

📍 South India

What is Appam?

A pancake made with fermented rice batter and coconut milk. It is crisp around the edges and has a soft centre. The rice batter used to make appams is fermented overnight – or for at least 8 hours – until it's light and airy. 

Best enjoyed with: Spicy condiments, egg, seafood and meat curries, and stew. 

Origin of Appam

An early record of appam can be found in Perumponuru, a 2nd century CE poem in the Tamil language. There is also speculation that it might have Jewish origins! 

Fun fact: Variations of the appam exist in Indonesian and Burmese cuisines!

Parotta

📍 Kerala

What is Parotta?

A layered flatbread, made with a dough of maida (all-purpose flour) that is kneaded and beaten into thin layers. These layers are then used to form a ball that is flattened and cooked on a pan. 

Best enjoyed: Hot and freshly made, with almost anything — vegetable dishes, gravies, curries, and more. However, in Kerala, beef fry and parotta are considered a classic combination! 

Origin of Parotta

Invented in Sri Lanka, the parotta journeyed to India via Sri Lankan Tamilian migrant workers as the Veeshu or Ceylon Porotta. From the coast of Tamil Nadu, it made its way to Kerala, where rebranded as the Malabar parotta, it has become an iconic flatbread. 

Fun fact: Various iterations of it have cropped up across the southern half of the country, from kothu parotta of Madurai to Tuticorin’s coin parotta to the mutton-stuffed, egg-washed Ceylone parotta!

Rumali Roti

📍 Deccan

What is Rumali Roti?

A thin flatbread made using dough of maida (all-purpose flour) and wheat flour, cooked on the convex side of a karahi (a wide, circular cooking pot). 

Best enjoyed: Hot and freshly made, with Awadhi, Mughlai, and tandoori dishes. 

Origin of Rumali Roti

Invented in the Deccan region of India, during the Mughal period, when Royal chefs would use it to wipe excess oil off food or fold it to be served as a table napkin for the kings. Paasti or paosti chappatai is a larger version of this flatbread made in the Pakistani regions of Bannu and Waziristan. 

Fun fact: Legend has it that rumali roti is such a finely-crafted flatbread, it can pass through a finger ring!

Happiness Hamper Offer - Rotimatic

We Indians love our rotis and chapatis, don't we? Especially those hot and fresh chapatis that taste like home anywhere, anytime. Even if you’re trying to lose weight, you might not want to give up on that pleasure. And, you don't have to. You see, the obstacle to your weight loss journey is wheat and refined flour. They are high in carbs and calories and will not help you in your weigh t loss journey. 

One cup of maida (Refined Wheat Flour) has 455 calories, and one cup of wheat flour has 407 calories. That means 1 roti made with refined flour has 120 calories and 1 roti made from wheat flour also has 120 calories. Although that may make you think there is no difference between the two, that’s not true. Wheat has high fiber content and is more nutritious than refined flour. 

But you can ditch both and use a variety of healthier alternatives to make different kinds of healthy chapati for weight loss. These flours are more nutritious alternatives to wheat flour or refined flour.

So the bottom line? Cut those extra calories out of your chapatis by replacing wheat or refined flour with healthier alternatives. 

If you’d like to know how many calories you should eat in a day to lose weight, check out this handy dandy calculator: How Many Calories Should You Eat? Weight Loss Calculator.

An ideal daily intake of calories usually depends on age, metabolism, and physical activity levels. Typically, the recommended daily calorie intake is 2,000 calories a day for women and 2,500 for men. But it differs from person to person, so give that calculator a try. 

Now, let's get into the dough.

What if We Told You Anyone Could Make Rotis and Chapatis by Just Pressing a Few Buttons?

We understand your hesitation about using alternative flours. Despite their numerous health benefits, many people still choose wheat or refined flour, and one of the main reasons is that making rotis using flours like bajra and jowar isn't as easy as making rotis with regular wheat or refined flour. We also understand that bajra and jowar flours make preparing the dough very difficult. Then rolling it out and cooking it without breaking the roti is another annoyance.

But you don't need to worry about all that.

In fact, you don't even need to be a master chef to make healthy rotis with bajra and jowar flours.

We've got you covered there.

Its such a delight to hear from our customers how their lives have been transformed with the arrival of Rotimatic: how happy they are to be able to replace frozen options (or indeed making rotis themselves) with this smart...

Getting tired of making rotis every day? Of course not...who could be?

But, that doesn’t mean you wouldn’t mind some variety once in a while.

Well, we’ve got some great news for you. Your Rotimatic can make a whole lot more than just rotis for Indian meals.
