when offering any food to deities its better to make rice flour at home instead of using store brought rice flour. in this post, i am sharing how i make rice flour at home. i had made this rice flour to make murukku for diwali. so i thought i will take pics and share the method. you can use any quantity of rice. smaller quantities can be ground in a mixer-grinder, but for large quantities give in a grinding mill (chakki).

one of my readers had informed me that for south indian snacks a type of rice called as IR 20 raw rice is used. this rice is easily available in tamil nadu. but not in other parts of india. where i live IR 20 raw rice is not available. so i have used sona masuri rice to make the flour. if you live in tamil nadu, then you can use IR 20 raw rice. if you do not get IR 20 raw rice, then use any short to medium grained regular rice.

after making the rice flour, store in an airtight jar. you can even refrigerate or freeze rice flour.
