#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.

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. As you will see, rotis are extremely versatile and can be used in various cuisines from Pizzas to Quesadillas! Hope these trigger some more fun and healthy roti ideas!

Let’s dive in to see how simply these recipes are prepared:
