Rice flour is essential for making a variety of different foods. It can be used as coating to make crispy deep-fried foods, as a batter for making delicious pancakes, and it can be used to make dough for noodles and breads. Rice flour is gluten-free and a great substitute for people who are gluten-sensitive. Glutinous rice flour should be used for rice-based desserts such as mochi or tang yuan.
