One of my favorite foods growing up in Singapore was roti prata. Every so often, I will find myself craving the yummy Indian fried flour-based pancake. The only problem is, it’s not always easy to find roti and my roti-making skills are definitely not up to par. However, I may have found the solution to my roti withdrawal. The Rotimatic is the world’s first fully automated robot roti-maker. Although it’s a bit pricy ($599), this device is fully automated and all you have to do is add the ingredients into the machine, plug it into an outlet, select your desired thickness, crispness and oil content on a small LCD screen, and leave it all to the Rotimatic to churn out your roti for you.
Unfortunately, the roti maker is currently “sold out,” and the initial run of Rotimatics won’t arrive in consumers’ hands until early 2015 because work is still being done to perfect its assembly line as well as getting U.S. certification.
