Homemade Rice Flour

Best Blogger Tips

Rice flour is made fresh at home for many recipes like Thiruvathirai Adai, Iddiyappam, Murukku and few more. Its very simple to make and the recipes turn out great if homemade flour is used. I make them in few batches and store in the refrigerator for further use. 
I am posting the procedure to use as a reference for my recipes using the homemade Rice flour.


Clean and wash the rice for three times or until the water runs clear~ I soaked 4 cups. Soak for about 4 hours

Strain the water and spread over a white cloth or thick paper towel. Let the moisture absorb and leave for about an hour.

In a mixer take  about a cup and run the mixer on high speed for few minutes.

Keep a fine sieve ready over a newspaper and sieve the flour. The coarse flour will remain and the fine flour is sifted.
Do not discard the coarse flour, add another cup along with the coarse flour and continue the process.

I could get 3 cups fine flour and 1 cup coarse flour. I use the coarse flour for Thiruvathirai kalli, Rice rawa upma and few other recipes.

If using for later use, roast the flour again in a kadai and sieve again. When cool store in airtight containers.

  4. Nice post, homemade is always best

  5. Homemade rice flour are always best for murukkus,i do the same way too..

  6. Hi,
    I have a question? After the soaked rice gets dry, no need to roast the rice in a dry hot pan is it.

  7. Arthy,
    I do not roast the rice before and after grinding if I am using it immediately. I do roast if I am storing it for further use.

  8. Hi,
    can we use the roasted flour for idiyappam ? will it come nice? i always use store bought flour for idiyappam. Want to try it with home made flour.

    1. Poonkuzhalii,
      You can use the roasted flour for Idiyappam. I have used it too and they turn out white and soft for me. As I have mentioned I make the rice flour for longer shelf life, I roast the flour a bit and sieve it again and store it in an airtight container.
      Do try and let me know.

  9. Thanks for the reply. Will definitely try it.

  10. Can it be dried after grinding in a food dehydrator and for how long? My dehydrator has only high and low. Which one do you suggest I use? Thank you.
