Rice, without which, the Nepalese feel a part of their stomach always vacant, can be cooked easily using a rice cooker. The pressure cookers are not much difficult to handle; but, it won’t harm to save the gas and stay away by the whistles. Rice cookers are not just modern, but eco-friendly as well. Nowadays, the different advanced rice cooker is also developing with advanced features.

Roti maker

After rice, roti is another favorite meal of Nepalese. But, dividing the dough, making chapatis with belna, and cooking it in a pan can be quite hard work and might take some time. But, the introduction of Roti Maker has reduced the problem, as one can instantly prepare the roti a few seconds after pressing the divided dough in the roti maker.

Mixers & Blender
