With your Rotimatic, roti making becomes such an easy task. Each roti will be perfectly round, perfectly puffed and perfectly soft! However, we’ve gotten many queries on how to make and store even softer Rotimatic rotis! Worry not, we’ve collected some are some easy tips just for this!

Flour Power!

When you use Rotimatic, it is very important to ensure that the flour that you use is consistent with the flour that you choose in the Rotimatic settings. Having the wrong flour type and the wrong flour settings will disrupt the roti making process and will hinder the machine from making soft rotis.

Flour consistency is an important factor in flour brands and though Rotimatic works well with many different flour brands, Aashirvaad Select and Pillsbury/Sujata Gold have been customer favorites.

Rotimatic Ingredient Tips

While Rotimatic rotis are already naturally soft, you can make them even softer! Try placing lukewarm water in the water container of Rotimatic when making rotis. This tried and true method is approved by our Rotimatic Owners, in particular, those living in cold climates!

Another interesting hack is adding 1-2 tablespoons of milk powder or almond powder to your flour container when making roti. This will add moisture to the dough ball formed making the rotis even softer when they puff.  It’s great for additional nutrients as well.

If you’re keen to add more nutritious ingredients into your flour mixture, use oats or psyllium husk!  Doing so will not only get you will get you softer rotis but you’ll also have rotis rich in fibre! Yes, rotis help battle constipation too!

Roti Storage

In reality, Rotimatic rotis are not much different from regular chapatis. Hence hacks used in storing regular chapatis can also be implemented here. For instance, breaking a Rotimatic roti with a muslin cloth is extremely helpful in keeping your rotis soft.

Like other rotis, Rotimatic rotis if not kept properly, will harden over time and will become too chewy if left in out in the open! So, if you’d like to save your rotis for later, immediate storage in a casserole is crucial and will keep your rotis fresh for the next few hours!  If you don’t have a casserole, worry not, wrapping the rotis tightly in aluminium foil and storing it in a lunchbox will also work wonders!

From us to you, Happy Diwali.

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).

Avoid using Ghee or Butter

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!

Bajra roti is a dish from Rajasthan. It is made from bajra (otherwise known as pearl millet) and has a rustic flavor. It is challenging to make but worth the effort! Though not commonly seen on restaurant menus, it is a staple that is both healthy and delicious!

Bajra roti is the ideal carbohydrate to consume for the management of diabetes. It is not only rich in nutrients, but it has a low glycemic index (GI) too!  Low GI foods are foods that release energy slowly when digested. They protect your kidneys from over-exertion and reduce insulin spikes. Thus bajra roti is an excellent option for those who are watching their sugar and weight!

People love this update!
People love this update!

But that’s not all, bajra roti is also high in iron and zinc and has been speculated to be useful for anemics. Its anti-inflammatory properties are essential in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases. It also has a high amount of antioxidants and polyphenols making it rich in anti-cancer properties!  To top it off, its high fiber content makes it a great grain to battle constipation!

Despite all the health benefits, many still find bajra roti taxing to cook! The whole preparation and cooking process takes 30 – 45 minutes for even the most experienced chefs. Flattening bajra can be a nightmare as it has very little gluten and will not clump and roll in the same way as wheat flour will. Wrestling the dough with your fingers in an attempt to flatten it will often lead to lumps.  Using a rolling pin may prove to be a challenge as the dough tends to stick to it. The final product is hardly ever a perfect circle, and if flattened unevenly bajra roti will not cook uniformly!

The best part is, you don’t even need to wait half an hour to make a roti. It only takes 90 seconds! Feed your family bajra roti anytime, at your convenience! It just takes the push of a button.

Making the best dietary decisions for you and your family is a daunting task! Step into any supermarket, and you’re instantly flooded with a slew of new buzzwords that seemingly encourage a newer healthier you. Deciphering nutritional labels has become a modern-day challenge.  No one knows what their food contains anymore!

Don’t worry, we’re here, and we’ve got your back. Today, we’re answering 3 big questions that will make your weekly grocery trips a breeze.

Does Non-GMO (Non-Genetically Modified Organisms) mean the same thing as organic?

No, they mean entirely different things! Organic means that the product was grown without artificial chemicals pesticides, fertilizers or feed. Non-GMOs are foods that haven’t been genetically modified.

However, organic farming regulations prohibit the use of GMOs. Meaning that all organic livestock cannot be fed GMO corn or soy. So if you’re consuming organic food, know that it was farmed without GMOs. Hence Non-GMO foods may not be organic, but all organic foods are Non-GMO.

Organic Gluten-Free
Organic Gluten-Free

Are gluten-free options the best bet?

That depends on your body! With plenty of people adopting a gluten-free lifestyle, it’s easy to assume that gluten is a ubiquitous hidden toxin. This is not so! Gluten is a family of naturally occurring proteins found in crops such as wheat and rye. Thus, it is in bread, flatbreads, cakes, doughnuts, pizzas and other baked goods. It’s likely that you’ve been eating gluten all your life!

Going gluten-free is only essential for people who have gluten intolerance, gluten sensitivity or wheat allergies.  Gluten does not pose a threat to most. However, if you are unsure about your gluten digesting abilities, a small trip to the doctor will unveil the truth about your gut!

Should I buy “reduced sodium” foods?

Reduced sodium means that there is less salt added to a particular food. Should you buy it though?  The answer isn’t so simple. Just because something has been reduced, doesn’t mean it has been reduced substantially!

To deduce whether it’s worth your heart, take a peek at the nutritional label at the back of the food package. It will state the amount of sodium per serving. According to the American Heart Association, adults should ideally consume only 1500 mg of sodium a day! So you will need to do the math to see if the reduced amount of salt is too much or too little for you to consume.

Some rice, some chicken, a side of veggies, and you have yourself a plate of dinner. Not that there’s much wrong with it, but we’ve all pondered how different our dinner would taste if bothered to be a little more organized or color-coordinated. And of course, it’s a handy skill to have when friends and family visit for a meal.

What if we told you, you don’t actually need a fancy art degree to figure out the perfect plating for the perfect meal? Let us sort you out with our favorite tips and picks:

The White Backdrop

To get your plating right, your plate obviously is where you start – and this is when you get your white plates out of your cabinets. The bright white plate props up the colors of your food get them more vibrant and add that much appeal to your meal. Simple, we know, but definitely true!

The Odder The Better

Sure, there’s beauty in symmetry, but when it comes to presenting food, odd numbers are key! Arrange your plate with all different elements in groups of 3 or 5 (or 7!). Odd numbers are meant to be more aesthetically pleasing – more so with food!

Decorate your Plate Asymmetrically with Rotimatic

Play to the Senses

Please your eyes, tempt your smell and tease your tactile senses with texture, touch, and mouth-feel. But you have to be careful, and not tinker with the elements of your dish just for the sake of your senses. For example, garnishing your plated meal with red capsicums simply for the pop of red might sound like a good idea, but messes up the other senses. Does the crunch of your capsicum fit well into your dish, or does it just worsen your mouth-feel?

Get Stacked

Having height in the center of your dish evens out the overall presentation of your meal. By layering or stacking ingredients, you give the dish more depth and a beautiful symphony of flavours. On top of all that, it’ll get you a delicious Instagram-worthy picture as well!

Be One With The Nature

The dish you’ve prepared has involved a lot of your love, passion, thought, and technique. When it comes to playing, however, be sure to use a lighter hand, and let nature guide you. Your colors should reflect the seasons and the environment, with contrasting shades in your dish that evoke emotion. Keep it simple, sure, but always let the ingredients be the stars.


Like we’ve told you! In science there’s truth, and in art there’s honor. Food plating is a perfect symphony of the two, and we hope our tips have found you well! Send us your food plating photos on the reviews page of our website or post them on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram and tag us.

It’s Monday morning, “today is the day,” you pep yourself, and then begins your healthy diet. Fruits for breakfast, a sandwich for lunch, and then a chicken salad to end the night. Tuesday? Pasta for lunch with mozzarella sticks on the side, and burgers for dinner with dessert to end the night. We’ve all been there, and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that.

Adopting a “healthy diet” right away isn’t as easy as it sounds, and there are ways, simple and realistic ways, you can improve your diet, without necessarily making shocking changes to your eating habits! Let us tell you of some!

Plan ahead!

Before each week starts, create a strategy. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, with healthy snacks to munch on. This helps you shop smarter at the grocery store in an aim to either gain, maintain, or lose your weight. Remember how that one night you couldn’t think of what you’d like for dinner so resorted to a fast food option? And that one night became three nights and more? Plan ahead!

Plan your meal in advance

Don’t be salty!

On a good day, we should be limiting our sodium intake to 1,500mg a day, but the best of us always go for well more. Reducing sodium, however little by little, not only lowers your high blood pressure risk but also tames your sugar cravings. Two birds, one stone!

Keep it to 80%!

“Hara Hachi Bu,” a principle practiced by the people of Southern Japanese Okinawa islands, means to only eat until you’re 80% full. It’s proven that their people eat lesser than most cultures, and live longer! The less bloated you feel, the longer you live – must be true!

Peel Good!

We’ve been guilty of just tossing the peels of fruits and vegetables right into the trash, missing out on an abundance of nutrients. More often than not, the skin of a fruit contains more nutrients than the inside – like citrus peels containing more fiber and Vitamin C than the flesh.

Add color!

Be it the yellow of lemon, the red of berries, the purple of grapes, or the green of lettuce – colors contain vitamins! Don’t shy away from adding color to your meals. You could even have fun with it! Challenge yourself to add one more color to your dinner table with every meal.

Munching bowls!

What if we told you about saving the planet could get delicious? Swap your plastic bowls for bell peppers – halved and deseeded. Go crazy with your favorite fillings, and add a new dimension to your appetizers! There’s a long list of fruits and veggies that could take the shape of bowls.

Please cheat!

We can’t stress this enough! Your drive and motivation are serving you well, but you’re definitely entitled to a hall pass and enjoy a pizza or some cake every now and again. Some have a cheat day in a week, some had a cheat meal in a day – whichever keeps you going!


And there you have it – some simple, cheap, and let’s face it, realistic ways to keep our diet in check whilst still making the most out of fun and vitamins in your meals! Think you could do better and would like to share tips of your own? Share with us on the Rotimatic Owners community here!

With the food all laid out to perfection on your dinner table, you see a flash in your eye, and right then it hits you – this needs a photo. Half of your table gets excited and thanks you for reminding them, the other sigh and wait on before they can sink their teeth into the dinner.

We don’t blame you, and you’re not wrong either – a joyous moment like delicious food bringing together your friends and family definitely deserves a photo, and sometimes, nothing but the perfect shot would do.

Whether you’ll be flaunting your pictures on social media, or just to smile back on days and weeks later to recall that moment, there are some food photography tips and tricks that could make your meal more salivating than we’re sure it already is.

Let us help you out:

Getting the Right Angle

“Obviously…,” you’re thinking in your head, angles are going to be important in how your food looks, but where you place the camera will alter the type of story you’re looking to tell.

Art of Food Photography
Art of Food Photography

The type of food you’re trying to take a picture of comes into play; its size, shape, height, and unique features (like garnish). Some dishes look great when you shoot from right in front of the food, and others are best suited when you are looking down from directly above the table. Imagine a table of cupcakes with delicate icing and toppings sprinkled. Would you take an angular shot of the cupcakes showing the precision of the icing and sprinkles, or an aerial shot that neglects the beauty and architecture of your cupcakes?

It’s the same for a stack of rotis; an angular shot showing the stack’s height would prove more useful, compared to an aerial shot from the top where it’d just look like one roti for a table full of hungry people!

Setting the Stage

One thing that’d stand out more than a mess in a photo, is an empty space, or many of them! Imagine those to be plot-holes in a movie or story you’re trying to tell or read.

Think of the supporting cast that could fill these spaces and make your hero look all the better. Surround your main dish with ingredients and probs you’ve used to prepare that dish. Sauces, oils, even cooking utensils to drop little hints to what really made that dish – make them ponder and drool even more!

Go further with tins, jars, fabrics, and linens to perhaps dip into the origin of the dish, or how it should be served – it elevates your picture and certainly gives it dept.

A Little Light

Lighting’s tricky – too little of it makes your photo more ominous than intended, and too much of it could blind your audience to the finer details of your dish.

The most important tip for photography would be to shoot against the light, not with it. That means, if you’re taking a shot of your pizzas, be sure that the light isn’t behind the dish, but in front of it – so you’ll be using sunlight to literally light your food up, instead of your dish becoming silhouettes.

Eat Good Food and Lead Healthy Life
Eat Good Food and Lead Healthy Life

The other tips are going to depend on how you want your shots. You could either move away from the lighting or manipulate it with black and white cards that you could make easily with foam. Size them to fit your needs, using white cards to bounce light into shadow areas, revealing important details, or black cards to make shadows stronger for more contrast.

Color Code It

Now you’ve got your angles, you’ve got your props, and also worked out your own lighting. You’re almost good to go, except for one detail that many let slip just before posting their pictures – color.

Now, your dish is the star of the gathering and the picture. You’ve pampered her with props and flattering lighting, but now it’s time to give her her finishing touches. Think color, and which color does your dish radiate? The red of strawberries and rhubarb? Or the green of your palak paneer?

Pairing the red of your strawberries with a red baking tray, for example, takes the limelight away from the dish, and attention is given to your baking tray instead. The same with the green of your palak paneer – would it look equally delicious in a bright yellow bowl? Probably not! When placing items into your food images, try selecting neutral tones, something that makes the food really pop against it, like black or white props, or glass bowls, so your dish gets all the Likes it deserves.

Mummy wasn’t kidding when she’d tell you the secret to a healthy physique laid in her rotis! That endearing aroma of a flattened dough ball taking shape and color on a tawa is one every Indian household must be familiar with, and for good reason too.

Unlike conventional sliced white bread, you’ll find at supermarkets, rotis are rich in nutritional value. A small chapati counts for a mere 70 calories, of which you get 3 grams worth of protein, just 0.4 grams of fat, and 15 grams of energy-giving carbohydrates.

A slice of white bread, on the other hand, clocks in at 94 calories, 4 grams of protein, 0.8 grams of fat and 18 grams of carbohydrates. It’s no surprise that nutritionists favour rotis to bread – nutritionally speaking, you just get more bang for your buck!

Not convinced? Let’s take a closer look at some of the health benefits of rotis below:

Packed with Nutrients

While modern bread-making techniques use refined flour, rotis are prepared with unleavened flour and therefore packed to the brim with nutrients. A humble roti contains Vitamins B, E, and minerals like copper, zinc, iodine, manganese, silicon, potassium, calcium and other mineral salts.

Whole wheat in rotis is also an excellent source of whole grain, and research has shown that 3 servings a day can help reduce the risk of heart disease, so you can lead a healthier, happier life.

High in Fiber

Rotis are simple in terms of ingredients, but complex when it comes to its benefits. Whole wheat flour is an excellent source of soluble fibre, which helps lower blood cholesterol levels and helps keep our digestive systems in tip-top shape.

Eat Healthy Rotis, Stay Healthy
Eat Healthy Rotis, Stay Healthy

Packed with Power

Contrary to popular belief, carbs are not the enemy! Carbohydrates are in fact our bodies main source of energy and help fuel our muscles and organs for the day ahead.

Rotis are chock full of complex carbohydrates, keeping you energized and satisfied for longer stretches of time.

Indulgence can be healthy too, and these are just a few reasons to incorporate the roti into your daily diet. From dals and curries to fish or meat, no respectable Indian meal is complete without the humble roti.

Relish the spread with a tangy yogurt and a bright salad for a delicious and nutritionally balanced meal. Bon appetit!

Rotimatic is one such machine that is loved by so many families who make healthy rotis every day in their kitchen. Read on our blog to find out more about it. Also, Click here to become a Rotimatic Owner today!

 

You’ve done it, we’ve done it; we’ve all had that indescribable urge to look through our friends’ refrigerators when we’re invited over.

We’ll more often than not find a snack to munch on that we otherwise wouldn’t have to lay around in our own fridges, but perhaps there’s a little more than just appetite to be scurrying through another person’s refrigerator.

Curiosity; comparing eating habits, choice of snacks, and refrigerator layouts reveal more about a person than you’d imagine. The same for yours!

What do your friends think or say when they’re ransacking your fridge? If you’re looking to get organized but you’re not quite sure how let us sort you out. Shelf or drawer? High or low? Here’s the low-down on your fridge essentials:

  1. There’s a reason the word “consistency” consistently follows eggs. They do best where the temperature is most consistent – on the middle shelf. Better yet, leave them in the original cartons and don’t transfer them to the fridge egg container.
  2. You’d place milk on the top shelf for easier reach, but your milk bottles and cartons really should be on the bottom and all the way in the back where it’s the coldest.
  3. Similarly for your remaining dairy products, like cheese, yoghurt, and sour cream. Bottom, all the way in the back where it’s the coldest. Word of advice, keep them accessible and visible so you never lose sight and mind of their expiration dates.
  4. As for your packaged raw meat, have them in the coldest bottom shelf, usually in a drawer that comes with most fridges. That way, if the meat juices drip, it doesn’t have to contaminate the rest of the fridge.
  5. Your vegetables stay fresh longest with a bit of humidity. Vegetables stay fresh longer with a bit of humidity. The drawer labelled vegetables or high humidity is the moistest spot in the fridge. Be sure to store them in their original packaging on in a loosely tied plastic bag.
  6. As for fruits, they belong in the low humidity drawer, often marked as the “crisper”. Again, leave them in the original packaging or in a loosely tied plastic bag, though citrus fruits are fine without a bag. Protip: Do not wash your fruits and vegetables until it’s time to use them; the moisture encourages bacteria and mould growth, and we don’t want that!
  7. With deli meats, you should pop them in the shallow meat drawer, which is a little colder than the rest of the fridge (or the bottom shelf if you don’t have the drawer!)
  8. Back to dairy, your butter and soft cheeses don’t have to be the coldest so you can keep them in the dairy compartment on the door, also the warmest part of the fridge. Be sure to keep your soft cheeses in air-tight containers though!
  9. What about condiments? Your sauces, dressings, and pickles are typically high in vinegar and salt, which are natural preservatives. That said, storing them on the kitchen door works just fine.
  10. And juices? So glad you asked! If they’re pasteurized, they can be stored on the door. If they’re freshly-squeezed instead, store them on the bottom shelf.

Remember all those years ago when we would imagine robots preparing our meals? “The future,” we labeled it. Well, the future is here.

Be it to ease the burden on our parents to get dinner ready, or to optimize our food prep processes so ingredients are cooked to perfection without any wastage – whatever we once visualized, technology has now materialized.

Where the only other form of food innovation involves improved delivery and more frozen food options, we’ve compromised our health for convenience, and people are increasingly distancing themselves from the enchantment of preparing a meal in the kitchen.

Get on with the times and pick from our list of handy kitchen devices so you enjoy home cooked food without losing out on all nutrient goodness!


Rotimatic

We just had to start with this one. Rotis are a staple for South Asians across the world, and while time has become tighter and schedules get busier, they just can’t afford the time and effort it takes to prepare rotis daily.

Moreover, roti-making is a craft – from measuring to mixing, and from kneading to puffing, it’s a skill acquired over years of practice.

Therein lies the purpose of the Rotimatic – a robot operating on dozens of motors and patents, with A.I. and IoT capabilities to mimic the pride and craft that makes every roti.

Where mom would have to get up an hour earlier each day and be the last to arrive at the dinner table, the Rotimatic churns flour into a hot and puffed roti in 90 seconds.

There’s a little something for everyone too – tortillas, puris, and pizzas are also options to go for with your rotis, with many more free recipe upgrades in the pipeline.

Truly a case of one Rotimatic, with endless possibilities.

Sous vide Cooking

A new and healthy obsession has been sous vide cooking; to get your meats and meals to the perfect temperature.

The obvious benefit is doing away with diseases that could come with undercooked food, but sous vide cooking is a novelty that is also meant to prepare your ingredients and meals with the optimum temperature, bringing out flavors and textures that could easily be lost with lazy cooking.

Its smart features allow you to monitor and cook from a distance.

Take the meat, put it in a sealed bag, immerse it in a water bath, and your sous vide device does the rest. The sealing process ensures that no moisture is lost, and the water temperature ensures the food can’t overcook.

The result? Tender and perfectly cooked food that you could sear on a pan for that elusive crisp outer texture.
