Diwali is all about family and friends. It’s about the conversation, laughter, and bonding.  Playing the perfect host can often hinder you from enjoying such experiences with your loved ones. Making rotis on demand over the tawa during your Diwali dinner can be quite a challenge. Don’t keep scrambling back and forth from the kitchen to cater to everyone’s roti whims! With Rotimatic, it only takes 90 seconds to make a roti, and it can make 20 in 1 go! You don’t need to leave your conversation every 5 minutes to ensure everyone is well fed.

Hosting a Diwali party also means plenty of planning, decorating, entertaining and cleaning and with all the colors, food and noise, it is a completely immersive sensory experience. A celebration of this scale can be as exhausting as it is exciting. It could take days or even a week to completely recover from all the exhilarating activities.

Post-Diwali recovery requires time to unwind and relax from all the planning and jarring external stimuli. What better to aid you than Rotimatic?

Spread the love and light this festive season!

From us to you, Happy Diwali.

Mummy wasn’t kidding when she’d tell you the secret to a healthy physique laid in her rotis! That endearing aroma of a flattened dough ball taking shape and color on a tawa is one every Indian household must be familiar with, and for good reason too.

Unlike conventional sliced white bread, you’ll find at supermarkets, rotis are rich in nutritional value. A small chapati counts for a mere 70 calories, of which you get 3 grams worth of protein, just 0.4 grams of fat, and 15 grams of energy-giving carbohydrates.

A slice of white bread, on the other hand, clocks in at 94 calories, 4 grams of protein, 0.8 grams of fat and 18 grams of carbohydrates. It’s no surprise that nutritionists favour rotis to bread – nutritionally speaking, you just get more bang for your buck!

Not convinced? Let’s take a closer look at some of the health benefits of rotis below:

Packed with Nutrients

While modern bread-making techniques use refined flour, rotis are prepared with unleavened flour and therefore packed to the brim with nutrients. A humble roti contains Vitamins B, E, and minerals like copper, zinc, iodine, manganese, silicon, potassium, calcium and other mineral salts.

Whole wheat in rotis is also an excellent source of whole grain, and research has shown that 3 servings a day can help reduce the risk of heart disease, so you can lead a healthier, happier life.

High in Fiber

Rotis are simple in terms of ingredients, but complex when it comes to its benefits. Whole wheat flour is an excellent source of soluble fibre, which helps lower blood cholesterol levels and helps keep our digestive systems in tip-top shape.

Eat Healthy Rotis, Stay Healthy

Packed with Power

Contrary to popular belief, carbs are not the enemy! Carbohydrates are in fact our bodies main source of energy and help fuel our muscles and organs for the day ahead.

Rotis are chock full of complex carbohydrates, keeping you energized and satisfied for longer stretches of time.

Indulgence can be healthy too, and these are just a few reasons to incorporate the roti into your daily diet. From dals and curries to fish or meat, no respectable Indian meal is complete without the humble roti.

Relish the spread with a tangy yogurt and a bright salad for a delicious and nutritionally balanced meal. Bon appetit!

Rotimatic is one such machine that is loved by so many families who make healthy rotis every day in their kitchen. Read on our blog to find out more about it. Also, Click here to become a Rotimatic Owner today!

 

Anniversary gifts or random surprises – you don’t need a hallmark occasion to go out of your way for a gift or a surprise, especially for a loved one. Perhaps that’s the belief that has been thrusted upon on us that we’re only meant to dedicate hours in our day to day duties and responsibilities, so quality time with loved ones only comes in second place. Well, that’s what we at Rotimatic are out to change.

Rotimatic - Quality time with Family
Rotimatic – Quality time with Family

Time you’d spend on a tedious process like kneading, mixing, cleaning and the likes is now taken care of by Rotimatic. It may not sound like much time at all – an hour a day – but soon after you’ll get into the hang of that additional hour in a day, those 7 hours in a week, and indeed 30 hours in a month. That’s a lot of time you could spend on rest & recuperation. A spa outing perhaps? Netflix with your favourite people? And how much sweeter would those few hours taste if you spent it with your partner?

Indeed, movies and massages are great avenues to spend a day out with your partner, but today, we want to tell you about the charm and enchantment of spending a day in – with a surprise meal for your partner. Your Rotimatic’s already awaiting your commands, so why not press, to impress?

Planning a surprise meal sounds like the combination of the two – the surprise, and the meal itself, and you’re not wrong! And wouldn’t that be a cherry on the cake if you made the meal yourself which is healthy as well as tasty? But striking the perfect balance between the two requires a few additional touches to truly make it one to remember. We’ll explain.

The Timing

Your partner needs to be caught off guard, and at the intended time and place you’ve planned the surprise. You’re already thinking of cheeky lies and fake plans you can come up with so your partner leaves with time and space to get your meal prep up and running, but you’ll realize soon that you’ll need the help of friends and family to keep your partner distracted. The key to this is simple – let as few people as possible into your little plan. The more people are involved, the higher the chances of a slip-up.

Enjoy a meal with your partner

The Mood

You’ve dreamt about this – the fairylights, the drapes, the silverware you keep in your shelves for the right moment. Don’t be afraid to get creative with the mood. The perfect dinner relies much on its ambience, so if you feel like you’ll have to set up an intimate corner on the balcony or patio, go for it. And get some flowers for a dinner table centerpiece while you’re it, or a Bryan Adams playlist to really set the tone ;).

The Menu

So you’ve got your surprise planned, the mood set, and your cutlery laid out – now it’s time for the menu. With your Rotimatic, the possibilities are endless, and near effortless. Don’t hold back – make sure spoil your partner. Starters, mains, and definitely dessert, go for the jugular. Over here, you’ll find heaps of recipes for any course of the meal, any time of day and year, and for any occasion.

A good starter option will be Spelt Biscuits with Creamy Herbed Shrimp Dip. Bite-sized delights with a zesty shrimp-based dip will tantalize your taste buds, and you’re only just getting started. For mains, why not have a go at a Roti Burger? Exactly what it sounds like, only more wholesome and healthier than your typical burger. Go crazy with the number of layers, sauces, and patty choices to both your and your partner’s likings for your own customized delight. We’re not done yet! No meal is complete without the sweet and sensual satisfaction of dessert, and we’re going to point you towards Vanilla Chocolate Teff Roti. Teff, a gluten-free ancient grain is native to Ethiopia, and a great source of protein and fiber. Who said dessert was always going to be a sin?

Choose from hundreds of recipes we’ve got curated for you, but if you’d like to take complete charge and innovate further, make sure you share it with us, along with pictures and videos!

Indeed, therein lies the elegance of Rotimatic; gifting you with time so you have more of it to spend on the people that matter more. And in turn, giving you the opportunities to surprise your partner with a lavish meal – a real Rotimatic surprise.
