Check out the dishes which we can make with home made rice flour:
- Soak rice in water for 45 minutes. After that drain the water and spread the rice in a clean white cotton cloth, inside the house for drying.
- Once the rice becomes dry, grind this in the mixer into a fine powder. Sieve this to take out the lumps and you can grind the residue if left any, and again sieve it to get smooth fine powder.
- Once it is done, dry this powder in sunlight for 4 to 5 hours and store this in a dry container.
- You can store this in the refrigerator too.
- After making the flour keeping it under the sunlight makes the flour moisture free and also you can store for a long time. Else fungus will form.
- If you are using the flour for immediate use, just roast them in a low flame without changing it and use.
- If you want to make it in bulk you can do the soaking and drying part at home, and grinding can be done in rice mills.
- In Tamil nadu we get Maavu arisi which is very ideal for making rice flour.
- Some people may steam the flour and use, but for idiyappam and puttu it will work out well. For bakshanams like Seedai It will not come out good.
