Roti Casseroles That Keep Them Fresh For Longer.
Tired of eating soggy rotis? Store them in this casserole for lasting freshness!
Rotis, as we know, are a staple food item in most Indian households, whether it’s a bowl of dal, sabzi, or even chicken and egg curries, rotis complete the meal.
However, with our fast-paced lifestyles, we prefer pre-prepping our rotis and relishing them later. We understand the steps one has to go through. The effort of kneading the dough, rolling it into perfect rounds, roasting the rotis, applying ghee to relish it with a delicious side dish later. But when the ‘later’ comes, your rotis are watery. However, storing the rotis in a regular container only leads to them being moist and tasteless later. That is where a stainless steel roti casserole with drip down vents saves the day. These vents collect the moisture from warm rotis and keep them fresh for long hours.
Over a period of two weeks and countless tests, Team Mishry reviewed the four most popular and readily available roti casseroles. Our Top Pick was the Borosil Stainless Steel Insulated Roti Server. Not only did this casserole keep the rotis moist-free, but they were warm too!
Borosil Roti Server’s drip down action worked the best amongst all contenders, and the rotis did not get soggy during our review process.
The coaster is made of stainless steel.
The coaster is big enough to store tawa-sized rotis.
It fits the casserole well.
Borosil Stainless Steel Insulated Roti Server is lightweight yet sturdy.
Other warm foods like idlis, theplas, and parathas can also be stored.
How did Borosil Stainless Steel Insulated Roti Server fair in our review?
All the roti casseroles that we reviewed have a dripping tray. This tray or coaster makes these casseroles better than the regular ones. While the regular casseroles only keep food warm for longer, freshness may be lost. A casserole with a dripping coaster or tray does the job of keeping food warm while retaining freshness and preventing the storage of moisture.
Unlike its contenders, Borosil had a stainless steel coaster. The other brands had plastic trays. We chose this brand as our top pick mainly due to the stainless steel coaster. As we know, keeping hot/warm food on plastic containers is not good for health. Stainless steel doesn’t transfer any toxic substances. This coaster is large enough to hold round rotis and even parathas or idlis. The coaster comfortably fits the casserole, and it is not too tight to take out. In addition to keeping the rotis and other food items moist-free, this casserole has a double-walled PUF. It serves to keep rotis warm for longer as it retains temperature.
The best Roti Casserole is by…
Team Mishry made fresh rotis using Aashirwaad Atta and stored a few in each casserole. We kept them in the casseroles for a little over 30 minutes. After the 30-minute wait, we had mixed reactions. Though none of the casseroles could keep the rotis warm, Borosil and NanoNine managed to keep the rotis moist-free. While both these contenders performed equally well, we picked Borosil Stainless Steel Insulated Roti Server as our winner due to the stainless steel coaster.
Based on the several rounds of testing, Borosil Roti Server emerged as our Top Pick. We found out that there were hardly any water droplets even in the bottom-most layer. If you want to eat rotis that don’t get soggy after a few hours, a stainless steel casserole is worth buying.
