     Most of the Indian snack like seedai,kara sev,oma podi,murukku,bread pakora,bonda,poorna kolukattai needs rice flour.Where as breakfast items like rava dosa,idiyappam, puttu are also made with rice flour.Coarse rice flour(rice rava can be prepared in a jiffy compared to the rice flour) is used for rice upma or  modhagam .The method of preparation is same.Now a days rice flour is used in making bread and cakes as well.Isn't it interesting ?

Tips to make your rice flour better:
  •  Making of rice flour is easy in your Indian mixer,if you need less quantity. 
  •  If you want in bulk, use nearby flour mill.
  •  Prepare fresh rice flour, roast it until the flour is hot to prevent any spoilage.
  •  Dry the rice flour in shade until it is non-sticky.This may take 4-5 hours.
  • Draining the water completely will help drying faster.
  • Soaking the rice 2-3 hours will also help grind faster.
  • Try to stop the mixer inbetween to avoid lumps or rice sticking to the sides.

If you have rice grinder or coffee grinder this will help making rice flour at home without an Indian mixer.FYI: Making rice flour for chettinad idiyappam is with boiled rice.This same procedure is followed except those rice require flour mill for sure.Let see how i prepared rice flour.
