Flour Power!

Rotimatic Ingredient Tips

While Rotimatic rotis are already naturally soft, you can make them even softer! Try placing lukewarm water in the water container of Rotimatic when making rotis. This tried and true method is approved by our Rotimatic Owners, in particular, those living in cold climates!

Another interesting hack is adding 1-2 tablespoons of milk powder or almond powder to your flour container when making roti. This will add moisture to the dough ball formed making the rotis even softer when they puff.  It’s great for additional nutrients as well.

Roti Storage

In reality, Rotimatic rotis are not much different from regular chapatis. Hence hacks used in storing regular chapatis can also be implemented here. For instance, breaking a Rotimatic roti with a muslin cloth is extremely helpful in keeping your rotis soft.

Like other rotis, Rotimatic rotis if not kept properly, will harden over time and will become too chewy if left in out in the open! So, if you’d like to save your rotis for later, immediate storage in a casserole is crucial and will keep your rotis fresh for the next few hours!  If you don’t have a casserole, worry not, wrapping the rotis tightly in aluminium foil and storing it in a lunchbox will also work wonders!
