Robots are spreading their wings everywhere now, and even Indian kitchens are getting automated. Robots are gradually taking over the kitchens to prepare dishes like biryani, paratha, dosas, butter chicken and more. Many semi-automated cloud kitchens in India are now working on robot chefs manufactured by kitchen automation and robotics companies. The future of the desi food scene is witnessing more automated ghost kitchens to ensure convenience and swiftness in food preparation and delivery.
Robots Can Cook Biryanis, Butter Chicken And More In A Jiffy
Robots have facilitated the quick preparation of complex Indian dishes like biryani and butter chicken. There are many companies in India that make automated kitchen machines now. One of the oldest kitchen automation companies in India, the Bengaluru-based Mukunda Foods, which was founded in 2012 by Eshwar Vikas and Sudeep Sabat, makes nearly 14 types of automated cooking machines and their demands have been increasing among cloud kitchens, restaurant owners and caterers. With machines like Biryani Bot, Dosamatic and Wokie, robotics are revolutionising the Indian Food & Beverages Industry. The machines can ensure delivery of the time-consuming dishes within a maximum of 30 minutes from the time of order.
Another Chennai-based start-up, RoboChef has created a fully automated robotic kitchen. RoboChef is a huge stainless steel machine, which is pre-programmed to cook around 600 dishes.
