#RotimaticLife

Rotimatic has become an essential part of our customers’ lives. Don’t just take our word for it, check out their healthy #rotimaticlife at Rotimatic Owners Facebook group. A community board for Rotimatic owners around the world. Here the owners exchange videos, tips, healthy recipes and hacks with each other to optimise the efficiency of their Rotimatic. Some pair their roti with daal and sabzi, and some play around the versatility of roti. Over the last 8 months Rotimatic has successfully served 3 million garam garam rotis across homes in US and Singapore. It has enabled families to enjoy fresh rotis without having to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. We want to take this occasion to thank each one of you for being an earnest part of the #RotimaticLife and turning this dream into a reality. Here’s to sharing homemade happiness.

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!

It’s no coincidence that both the rise in obesity and the rise of eating outside food have shot up in recent decades. In a system where our food passes through so many hands, there’s little control over what we are feeding our families. Cooking at home is empowering. You can be sure of the exact ingredients that go into your meals. Since outside food has different priorities than your home kitchen (they want to make something irresistibly tasty before considering how healthy it is, most of the time), you can reclaim a pretty significant part of your health by being in control of your food hands-on.

With Rotimatic, our endeavour is to ensure you don’t have to choose between health and convenience.

Supermarket-unhealthy-food

Convenience doesn’t have to mean a compromise on quality. We have outsourced our food preparation to supermarkets and with that comes the side effect of preservatives. The surest way to a healthy meal is to know every ingredient that goes into it. By ensuring you include whole wheat rotis in your daily diet, you can be sure of no hydrogenated fats, no preservatives, no artificial sweeteners, no artificial flavors or colors. Store bought, mass produced food is not the choice of any health-conscious family.

Homemade rotis come with a host of health benefits:

Rotis are made with whole grains

If you make roti or chapati with whole wheat flour (recommended with your Rotimatic), it can be really healthy for the body. Whole grains are filled with fibres and are nutritious. They are rich in carbs, soluble fibre and proteins. This helps boost your body energy, increase blood circulation and keeps you full.

Rotis are nutritious and low on calories

This whole grain is a rich source of vitamin (B1, B2, B3, B6, B9), iron, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium etc so you should not avoid roti in your diet. Replacing roti with bread and wraps can deplete your health in the long term.

Rotis have a low Glycemic index

Carbohydrates such as fruits, vegetables and grains are not metabolized into glucose at the same rate. Some are quickly digested, causing spikes in blood glucose and insulin release, while others are broken down more slowly, which impacts blood sugar and insulin levels to a much lesser degree. The glycemic index is a comparative measure of how quickly a carbohydrate is reduced into glucose. Whole wheat rotis have a Glycemic index lower than both white bread and white rice.

Rotis-healthy

Rotis are easy to digest

As rotis are made with whole grains, it is very easy to digest them. They dissolve easily and passes out into the intestines.

Rotis are fresh

As roti dough is kneaded few minutes before roasting, it is very fresh and healthy for the body. Other breads are fermented and they can be filled with fats and calories. Moreover, flour of freshly made rotis is not bleached with chemicals to last longer. So, it protects your body from, cardiovascular diseases and obesity.

Roti influences vata and pitta doshas

According to Ayurveda experts, roti helps balance the vata (controls all movement in the body, including breathing, digestion, and nerve impulses from the brain ) and pitta (controls digestion, body metabolism and energy production) dosha.
