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.|
