Gutinous Rice Flour Substitutions

Recommended Posts

Good evening.

I plan on making some sesame balls tomorrow for New Years. The recipe calls for glutinous rice flour, but I could not find any that is kosher near me. Are there any usable substitutes? I did grab some white rice flour, but I am not sure if it will work.

Can you use the rice itself instead of the flour? I tried making mochi yesteday with Thai sticky rice, and it turned out OK. I steamed it then put it in the food processor, which it threatened to kill (liiiiitle too sticky) - if I did it again I would add a little hot water to try to keep things moving. Or I would try a stand mixer with a dough hook to try to make a dough but I don't know if that would break the rice up enough.

Otherwise, maybe tapioca flour would be similarly sticky?
