It is preferred to use processed rice flour than ready rice flour. To make processed rice flour, wash sona masoori rice (or any other equivalent variety of rice) in water for 3 to 4 times. Drain on colander to remove excess water. Spread the drained rice on a kitchen towel in a thin layer and let it dry under shade for about half a day or until the rice is completely dry. Once completely dry, grind to powder in a mixer (or give to a mill to powder it). Sieve the powder to discard coarse particles. You could then spread the powder on a wide plate or on clean dry cloth to dry the rice completely. Store in airtight container. Best used within 3 months.
