Rice flour ideas?

cindywho Jan 12, 2011 08:59 AM

Somehow I ended up 2 1/2 bags of Red Mill rice flour and am short on ideas and interesting recipes that look like they might work.

So far I've dredged some mashed potato croquettes in it, and I've got a not so successful attempt at kimchee pancakes on my place (egg,water, flour, kimchee)

Any ideas lovely 'hounds?

    Is it plain rice flour, or is it the glutinous/sweet rice flour? SeriousEats has a gluten-free Tuesday column with interesting baked ideas:


    the cream puffs look tasty:


    If it's the glutinous kind, you can make various kinds of mochi.

      Long ago, someone told me that one of the secret ingredients to crispy fried chicken was rice flour. I bought some and tried it, and it sure was crispy. That was back in the dark ages, but I still remember that chicken.

        Try this dosa recipe, pretty easy and pretty tasty:


        The blogger thins out the batter to a crepe like consistency, makes it much easier to spread and swirl in a non stick pan.

            Definitely tempura. Tons of gluten-free recipes call for rice flour. For example, these crepes are good. http://www.grouprecipes.com/26997/cre...
