With Rotimatic, we are committed to make healthy eating hassle-free because we realise how tempting it is to ignore health for convenience.

Walking down the aisle of a grocery store, it’s easy to buy into the myth of goodness of homemade food prepared like instant noodles. Ready to eat foods in glossy packages serenade you with its loud beckons of “Tastes like home” or some other catchy tagline. Colourful speech bubbles scream “Healthy!” “Nutritious!” And smiling children with piping hot bowls of the meal stare back at you like it’s Christmas. You flip over the cover and it’s the same old story again- preservatives, trans-fats, Monosodium Glutamate- an ingredients list that sounds more like the labels off beakers in a chemistry laboratory.

Frozen food unhealthy

When did food get so complicated? Today we have a global phenomenon and it is increasing at an exponential rate. Termed as lifestyle diseases, research has proved that our current habits of binging on junk food, instant food and sedentary lifestyle has snowballed into a catastrophic epidemic that has claimed millions of lives. Diabetes, high blood pressure, cardiovascular problems, obesity, arthritis- all these non-communicable diseases today dominate the problems plaguing our lives. And one cannot blame the consumers. Caught between a demanding work schedule and processed food in plastic packets, people have very little choice left in the matter.

roti-revolution-is-here

But here at Rotimatic, we strive to change that and give back the power to the people. Maybe the goodness of homemade food can be prepared in a jiffy like instant noodles! Whether it’s finishing that presentation in time for a deadline, watching a match or you are simply too tired, Rotimatic gives you back your time, without compromising on your health. Intrigued? Read on to find out why Rotimatic rotis are the best gift you can give yourself and your family:

You get to decide what goes into your food:

No more Dinner Dilemma:

Breakfast is hailed as the king of meals and often termed as the most important meal of the day. But this often sidelines the importance of dinner that sits in your stomach the entire night and the wrong choice might derail your entire diet plan. Dinner should be light and easily digestible. Rotimatic rotis are rich in fibre and low on calories, making them the perfect meal to end your long day.

Prevent Constipation:

Rotimatic rotis are rich in soluble fibre and easily digestible. They are light and do not put a strain on your gut. A healthy body starts with a healthy digestive system and Rotimatic roti ensures that in a bid to get quick food, you do not miss out on the goodness of its nutrients.

Great for women’s health:

Globally, 1.62 billion people suffer from anaemia and the largest number of affected individuals are  non-pregnant women. To compound this further, a new lifestyle disease has emerged termed as Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome which is caused due to hormonal imbalance. It is very common among women of reproductive age and is a result of poor dietary choices. This is due to spikes in blood sugar, triglycerides- all found heavily in junk food and a sedentary lifestyle. Whole wheat Rotimatic Roti is rich in Iron and has a low Glycemic Index, meaning that it releases sugar slowly in the blood and allows sustained energy levels compared to junk food.

Piping Hot Rotimatic Rotis:

Food is always better hot and fresh. What applies to warm milk and warm lemonade applies to rotis too! Remember the casserole of hot rotis sitting in the middle of the table? Rotimatic recreates the warmth and nostalgia of home. They are round, hot and fluffy. Finished perfectly in 90 seconds, Rotimatic rotis feel good and taste great! Hear it from these Rotimatic Owners:

Choose organic food prepared hygienically to ensure a better day and happier future. Choose Rotimatic to help you lead the life you and your family deserve. Sit back, relax and let the hot, fresh rotis come sliding in.

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!

Rotimatic orders are now open in the US. Priority links are being sent to people who signed up on the waitlist. To register your interest head here.

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.

The Internet of Things is changing the world around us, from the way we drive, to how we make purchases. More devices have the capability to connect to each other, transmitting valuable information to form smarter device ecosystems. One of the things our customers love most about Rotimatic is that with it, IoT has come to kitchen tops. Once connected to WiFi via the official Rotimatic App, this smart machine is capable of IoT wizardry of your dreams!

Magic with the Rotimatic mobile App

The Rotimatic App will soon allow you to make rotis remotely. Say goodbye to any preparation time once you get back home from a long days work,  you will be welcomed with the waft of fresh rotis as you step through the front doors.

Control Rotimatic remotely

Start roti-making remotely, change the number of rotis you’d like, increase thickness and roast settings. Basically, everything that you can do on your Rotimatic screen and more. How does getting rotis ready for the kids when you are still at work sound?

Set up a roti-making schedule

If you already know when you want rotis, just set a reminder for the entire week and take it off your mind. In the early morning chaos, when everyone at home has to get ready to leave packing healthy lunch will be a breeze!

Freedom to choose the bread you like

Rotis, pooris, tortillas, missi roti, bajara roti or just some masala rotis. Rotimatic will allow you to relish a different type of bread every day! Just choose the preferred recipe on the mobile App and you’re done. All families have fussy eaters, we’ve got you covered.

Limitless possibilities

Rotimatic gets smarter with time! A connected Rotimatic enables us to keep adding more value to your Rotimatic experience. The video chat feature on the app, takes the whole customer support experience to the next level. Our engineering whiz kids sitting in our Singapore office are constantly working on making the Rotimatic smarter via cool software upgrades. Once they have been certified awesome, the upgrades get released into the cloud after which all Rotimatics can download them and update to the latest version.

“Hey Alexa, make me rotis” is not a distant dream now.

Sometimes, reality is better than the dream 🙂

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
2 Tablespoons cardamom pods, toasted and ground
8 large egg yolks
½ cup sugar
½ teaspoon kosher salt
Ice for ice bath

Make Crème Anglaise: In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, bring milk, cream, salt and cardamom to a simmer.

Transfer the mixture back to a saucepan and cook over low heat until it reaches 160oF or when mixture coats the back of a spoon.

Recipe created by Parties That Cook

On a seemingly regular Saturday, Zimplistic office was brimming with excitement. The most unflappable in our team were caught gushing and blushing. How could they resist? We shared our love for rotis with our favourite cricketer of all time. One of the most legendary batsmen ever, the king of test cricket, former West Indian captain, Brian Lara!  

Brian was intrigued by Rotimatic and impressed with all the hard-work and technology that went behind its invention. He enthusiastically heard all about the evolution of Rotimatic over the years, toured around our office, tried the different Rotimatic roti recipes, recollected fond memories with the Indian cricket team and of course posed with the team for selfies 🙂

After understanding all the inventions that made Rotimatic possible, Brian admired the spirit of perseverance and resonated with the importance of “preparation before proceeds”. 

In Brian’s words,

“For me preparation was everything. If I didn’t prepare properly, I wasn’t going to score runs. One of my favourite sportsman, Michael Jordan said that he practiced so hard that when he got into the match it was like cruise control, he knew what he was doing. I suspect in this environment it’s almost the same. You spent so many years building a product that eventually it is going to stand the test of time. I am really proud to be here and really proud of you guys for building something that is so exciting. For us West Indians, we have a lot of rotis and stuff like that. So it’s pretty cool to see what’s going on here. Well done!” 

To our delight, Brian is also a fan of rotis, he understands the art and science behind the roti-making process. We were glad to know that rotis are very widely consumed in West Indies and learnt about a popular West Indian roti-dish called Double Trinidad/ Doubles. Doubles essentially is made of two barras (flatbread) stuffed with curry channa (spicy chickpeas). Among South Asia recipes, Brian says it’s closest to ‘Chhola Bhatura‘.
We were as inspired as we were elated to hear encouraging words from Brian Lara. He too is looking forward to having a Rotimatic at his home and hosting a roti party!

Planning a party can seem like a daunting task and if it’s a party with kids, the challenges double. But with these roti recipes from the in-house chef at Rotimatic, we have got all bases covered.  Here are three roti recipes that are healthy, quirky, easy to prepare and most importantly, loved by all.
