Rotimatic Team

Who doesn’t start a New Year resolving to begin a healthier lifestyle? Eating clean and healthy food definitely tops the list, doesn’t it? As you wonder if this time the resolution will last, we at Rotimatic want to do our bit to help you start afresh.

Rotis are predominantly consumed in South Asian and specifically Indian Cuisine but these healthy flatbreads are extremely versatile. We do a lot of experiments with rotis, so do other Rotimatic owners. Combining some ideas from the community, we have churned out three healthy roti recipes to help you stick to your health resolutions. There is no limit to creativity with food, so go on and add your own zing to these or get inspired by these and try something new.

Here are three roti recipes for a healthy meal:

Have a Healthy, Happy New Year!

We are humbled and delighted to have crossed another landmark in the short history of Zimplistic. At the Singapore National Day Rally speech last evening, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong recognised Rotimatic as an innovation that will enable families to enjoy fresh rotis and chapatis without the women having to spend a lot of time in the kitchen.

We also had the honour of serving fresh Rotimatic rotis to the guests at the reception dinner post the speech.

Rotimatic started with a bold idea, a seemingly impossible mission, but the story and evolution of Singapore as a nation showed us that anything is possible. The supportive system and environment in Singapore has allowed us to tackle difficult problems and develop a world-class product.

We want to take this occasion to thank each one of you for being an earnest part of the Zimplistic family. Every word of support and appreciation from you encourages us to do even better. We hope you continue to support us in our journey forward.

We are happy to share that we have now shipped Rotimatic to all the pre-order customers in Singapore! We are now gearing up to bring Rotimatic to the homes in the US.

This is a big milestone for the team, marking the beginning of a new phase – Rotimatic from the lab to the homes. To express the gratitude for the support we received through the journey, we invited our Singapore preorder customers to our office to meet the team, get inspired with some exciting roti recipes, and to take their Rotimatic home.

Have a peek at the event here:

For all of you who are eager to know how Rotimatic is doing in the homes of users in Singapore, here is what they have to say:

Follow the link to the Straits Times’ article to read more about it.

We had a chance to share the Rotimatic experience with Joanna Stern and Geoffrey Fowler from Wall Street Journal. They tested Rotimatic at the Converge Technology Conference. Understandably intrigued with the product, they spoke to us about the inspiration behind the product, the complicated ways in which is works and of course the big question, ‘Can Algorithms Replace Mom’s Home Cooking?’

It is only with the support of our eminenet investors, NSI Ventures and Robert Bosch Venture Capital, that we are at the dawn of Zimplstic’s launch. With the help of their trust we will soon be undertaking the first lap of fulfilling our pre-order requests.

2. Product: how does Rotimatic work?

Rotimatic is an unprecedented amalgamation of precision engineering, robotics and design to make the tedious and time-consuming process of roti-making fully automated. You just load fresh ingredients, and it does the rest.

See Rotimatic in action:

But, the piece de resistance is that it’s WiFi-enabled! Which means your Rotimatic will keep getting smarter with time. It will auto-upgrade itself when we send any new software upgrades via the cloud. We recently introduced ‘Puri’ to the Rotimatic menu and there’s so much more in store – pizza base, tortillas, et al. Get ready to say goodbye to the store-bought sliced bread.
