Bringing popular South Indian street fare to your doorstep is Barottas, a food tech startup that has been satiating hunger pangs across the city for the past three-months. The online delivery service and app offers close to 20 varieties of the flatbread, which includes bun ‘barotta’ and the classic wheat, among others. Also find options like biryani, sevai and an array of starters, soups and desserts. In fact, they claim 100 and more meal combinations with the parotta! The breads are soft and flaky, best enjoyed warm. From the menu, the mutton roti canai, the kothu parotta and the Indian milkmaid roti canai here our vote. There are whole wheat options (imported from Malaysia) available too, and the app allows you to customise the elements of your order with their ‘Make your own meal box’ option. “Most people shy away from the barotta because of the stigma around it being unhygienic. So we put in two years of research and travelled to many countries to come up with this menu,” says V Thilagarasu, CEO of the startup, explaining the importance given to ingredients, hygiene and packaging of the meal. Currently operating from a centralised kitchen in Vadapalani and a few fringe outlets, the company plans to open kiosks across malls and arterial streets in the city soon.
