In this project, we are designing an automated bushera making machine. We are using an Atmega328P micro controller that is available on an arduino UNO board. In the project, we have two containers in which one is where the water is boiled and the other is where the Bushera is mixed from. The circuit is powered by a 12V source and a heater is powered by a 240V supply source. When the start button is pressed, the boiling of the water starts as well the mixing of flour with cold water which is done by a 12V DC motor. The mixing of the flour goes on for 30 seconds and stops as the boiling of water continues till the temperature sensor (TMP36) detects 100ͦc as the temperature of the boiling water. At this point, the heater turns off, the motor starts stirring as the valve opens to let the hot water pour into the mixed flour. The stirring goes on for 2minutes and at the end of this, the bushera is ready for consumption.
