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:
- 3 Cups of Flour
- 1/3 cups of Semolina flour
- 1teaspoon of salt
- Pinch of sugar for the golden brown colour
- Mix 3 cups of flour and 1/3 cups of semolina flour in a bowl
- Add 1 teaspoon salt into rotimatic water container
- Fill the flour prepared in step 1 into the rotimatic flour container
- Power on the machine, adjust the menu to the correct flour setting, select the amount of poori you want to make and press PLAY
- Fresh flattened dough will be “HALF” sent out of the rotimatic machine
- Remove the flattened dough IMMEDIATELY from the rotimatic machine
- Deep fry the fresh flattened dough in hot oil till its puffed and golden brown
- Remove fried poori from oil and leave to drain – standing
- Poori is ready to be served!
