When it comes to tasty rice flour recipes, there are just too many to count. This magical ingredient fits exceptionally well in both sweet and savory dishes. Plus, rice flour is 100% gluten-free, meaning that everyone can enjoy it without any worry.
The real question here is, which recipe should you try first? I mean, picking one out of hundreds of rice flour recipes isn’t really a simple task. Well, worry not because I’m here to help you with that.
In today’s post, let’s take a look at 10 mouth-wateringly delicious rice flour recipes that you can make right at home!
What Is Rice Flour?
Rice flour is a form of smooth and fine flour made from ground rice. It comes in two main varieties: white rice flour made by milling non-sticky white rice, and brown rice flour that is the result of grinding whole-grain rice brown. (1)
Rice flour contains no gluten and typically has a mild flavor profile, though the brown rice variety is a bit earthy in taste. It is commonly used in baking and frying recipes or as a thickening agent for soups, gravies, and stews.

Thanks to its gluten-free nature, rice flour is an extremely popular ingredient in zero-wheat cooking.
However, it’s not the only choice for gluten-sensitive people. Some excellent replacements for rice flour include high-grade almond flour, oat flour, and tapioca flour. Most of these substitutes will yield relatively similar results, albeit with minor changes in taste and texture.
In addition to regular rice flour, there’s also glutinous (or sweet) rice flour. Though they might look somewhat similar, there are many differences between rice flour and glutinous rice flour. For example, sweet rice flour is made from sticky rice instead of non-glutinous rice.
Moreover, while rice flour can be seen in both sweet and savory recipes, its glutinous cousin is primarily associated with dessert dishes.
7 Must-Try White And Brown Rice Flour Recipes
If you’re still unsure what to cook with your rice flour, here are some delicious recipes for you to choose from. I’ve included both dessert and main dish recipes in this list to help you understand the versatility of this magical ingredient!
1. Traditional Shortbread

2. Sweet & Sour Pork Stir Fry
Apart from sweet baked goods, rice flour can also be used to make savory stir-fried dishes. This is the perfect dish to make for Monday dinners, as it’s incredibly quick and easy to prepare. Not to mention that this goes perfectly well with hot rice – something that requires little effort to cook.
To create the pork’s unique sweet and sour flavor, we’ll be using a combination of soy sauce, ketchup, and spices. Vegetables like bell pepper and onion will help balance out the meat and give the dish a vivid appearance.
For The Pork:

- Kosher salt: 1 teaspoon
- Rice flour: ¼ cup
- Olive oil: ¼ cup
- Bell pepper: 1
- Red onion: 1
- Tomatoes: 2
- Garlic: 3 cloves

How To Make Sweet & Sour Pork Stir-Fry
For stir-fry dishes, things will be moving a bit fast, so make sure that you’ve read through all the steps in advance.
Step 1: Season The Pork
Put the pork in a medium-sized bowl, season it evenly with kosher salt then sprinkle rice flour on top. Toss the pork around to coat it in the flour. Put aside.
Step 2: Make The Sauce
To make the sauce, whisk the brown sugar, ketchup, rice wine vinegar, and soy sauce well in a bowl. When done, you can either set the sauce aside or refrigerate it in an air sealed container for up to a week.
Step 3: Prepare The Vegetables
Deseed and dice the bell pepper, red onion, and tomatoes into ½-inch cubes. Chop and grate 3 cloves of garlic.
Step 4: Cook The Vegetables
Place a large skillet over medium-high heat and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. When the oil is heated and simmering, add the vegetables and garlic. Stir continuously for about 1 minute until they’re barely softened, then transfer to a bowl and put aside.
Step 5: Cook The Pork
Pour the remaining oil into the skillet on medium-high heat. Wait for the oil to heat. Once shimmering, add the pork. Remember to shake off the excess rice flour beforehand. Cook the pork for about 90 seconds on each side until they turn deep brown.
Step 6: Stir-Fry The Pork With The Sauce
Add the sweet and sour sauce into the skillet and bring the heat up to high. Stir constantly for 2-3 minutes until the sauce thickens a little. Add the vegetables and stir to coat every ingredient with the sauce. Cook until warm.
Step 7: Serve Over White Rice
Serve immediately with white rice. You can also slice some green onions and use them as garnish.
3. Rice Flour Blueberry Muffin
Blueberry muffin is one of the classic breakfast dishes that everyone loves. While plain flour or pastry flour is often used to make muffins, you can swap them for rice flour if you’re sensitive to gluten. These decadent blueberry treats will come out just as light and fluffy!
This amount of ingredients will allow you to make 6 rice flour blueberry muffins.
- Sugar: 4 tablespoons
- White rice flour: 1 cup and 1 ½ teaspoons
- Canola oil: 2 tablespoons and 1 teaspoon
- Egg: 1
- Milk: ½ cup
- Baking powder: 2 teaspoons

How To Make Rice Flour Blueberry Muffin
The streusel topping will need to be prepared separately from the muffins dough. This recipe will take you about 35 minutes in total.
Step 1: Prepare The Oven And The Muffin Tray
First, preheat your oven to 425°F and lightly grease the muffin tray.
Step 2: Make The Streusel Topping
Add 2 tablespoons of sugar, 1 and a half teaspoons of white rice flour, and 1 teaspoon of canola oil to a bowl and mix to combine. Stop when the mixture reaches a sandy texture. Set aside.
Step 3: Prepare The Dry Ingredients
Mix the remaining white rice flour and sugar well with baking powder, lemon (or lime zest) and salt. Add the blueberries and stir carefully.
Step 4: Mix The Dry Ingredients With Wet Ones
In another bowl, blend the egg, milk, and 2 tablespoons of canola oil well then add the dry ingredients. Mix everything together until combined.
Step 5: Bake Your Muffins
Fill ⅔ of each muffin cup with the dough mixture and sprinkle streusel on top. Bake your muffins for 15 to 20 minutes until they are slightly brown on the edges. When done baking, let them rest in the tray for 5 minutes before taking out.

If you want the crumb to be a little softer and airier, you can add about ¼ cup of cornstarch, potato starch, or arrowroot. A small amount of xanthan gum (about ¼ teaspoon) can also improve your muffins’ texture and help them stay fresh for longer.
Some people also replace regular eggs with chia eggs, but personally, I’m not a fan of doing so.
4. Beer-Battered Fish And Chips (Fish Fry)
You can use rice flour to make the signature fish batter from Long John Silver restaurant. It’ll be a nice component to your fish and chips, also known as deep-fried fish and French fries.
They are a divine food combo that everyone should try at least once. Crispy from the first bite to the last, this dish is the perfect side dish to snack on while enjoying a glass of beer.
For a dish tasting this delicious, beer-batter fish fry requires surprisingly simple ingredients.
- Self-rising flour: 1 cup. You can make self-rising flour by mixing 1 cup of all-purpose flour with ½ teaspoon of fine salt and 1 teaspoon of baking powder.
- Rice flour: 4 tablespoons. If you don’t have rice flour, potato starch or cornstarch will do.
- Baking powder: ¼ teaspoon
- Cod filets: 6 ounce (4 slices)
- Ice cold Lager beer: 1 cup. Other types of beer also work, just stay away from dark and intense-flavored ones like porter or stoutes as they’ll affect the batter’s color and taste.
- Vegetable oil
How To Make Beer-Battered Fish And Chips
Without further ado, let’s get cooking. If you’re using frozen fish filets, remember to thaw them ahead of time.
Step 1: Make The Batter
Pour 1 cup of self-rising flour, 2 tablespoons of rice flour and ¼ teaspoons of baking powder into a bowl and whisk well. After whisking, keep the batter mixture in the freezer until ready to mix with beer.
Step 2: Prepare The Fish Filets
Pat the fish filets as dry as you can. Cut them lengthwise into 1-inch thick slices. Pour the remaining rice flour on a dish and season it with salt. Dust your filet with the flour-salt mixture and shake off the excess. Put the fish on top of a dish covered with wrinkled foil.
Step 3: Prepare The Deep-Fryer
Heat vegetable oil to 375°F in a deep-fryer.
Step 4: Finish The Batter
Take the flour mixture out of the freezer and add beer to it. Whisk the batter until it reaches a thick consistency, like pancake batter. Coat the fish filets by dipping them into the batter then lift out and wait for excess to drip off.
Step 5: Fry Your Fish
Fry the fish pieces for 3 to 4 minutes, dipping them in oil occasionally. When they’ve turned golden brown, take the fish out and drain them on paper towels. Serve hot with salt and vinegar french fries, lemon, and tartar sauce.
While you can almost any kind of beer for the batter, you need to make sure that the beer is ice cold by cooling them for 2 hours or more in the fridge. Remember, cold beer makes for extra crispy batter.
Preparing your batter in advance is a great idea if you don’t have a lot of time to cook, just make sure to refrigerate it at all times. While frying a large batch, you can also place the batter on top of an ice bowl to keep them cold.
You don’t have to follow the seasoning in this recipe to the letter. Feel free to flavor the fish with whatever you want before coating them with batter. Just be mindful not to go too heavy on the salt as salt is very absorbent and can dry out the inside of fish.
Speaking of dry, remember to pat the fish as dry as possible before it goes to the cold batter.
5. Wheat-Free Banana Bread
If you’re a fan of scrumptious desserts with bananas like I am, this recipe is a must-try. Fluffy and soft with just the right amount of sweetness plus the addicting flavors of coconut and banana, you won’t be able to stop eating this tasty banana bread.
This recipe calls for 2 cups of brown rice flour. If you don’t have them, you can use 2 cups of white rice flour or another suitable brown rice flour alternative, (such as almond flour and amaranth flour) instead. Either way, your bread will turn out just as delicious as store-bought.

6. Murukku (Indian Crunchy Rice Snack)
Murukku is a South Indian deep-fried snack made with dal flour, rice flour, and a mix of spices. Traditionally, these crunchy and flavorful treats are prepared during festivals like Sankranti, Dasara, and Diwai. They make for fantastic snacks for your picnic or road trips.
Urad dal flour is one of the core ingredients of murukku. However, you can also use pottukadalai flour (roasted gram flour) instead.
- Rice flour (ideally high-quality rice flour or idiyappam rice flour): 1 cup
- Urad dal flour: 4 tablespoons or 3 tablespoons of pottukadalai flour (roasted gram flour)
- Hot oil: 1 tablespoon
- Sesame seeds: ¾ teaspoon
- Carom seeds: ¾ teaspoon. You can also ajwain, vaamu, or omam instead.
- Salt: ½ teaspoon
- Red chili powder: ½ teaspoon
- Asafoetida (optional): ⅛ teaspoon. You can also use hing.
- Oil: 2.5 to 3 cups (for deep frying)
How To Make Murukku
If you don’t have urad dal flour at hand, you’ll need to prepare it first. Don’t worry, making urad dal flour is very straight-forward and won’t take long.
Step 1: Make Urad Dal Flour
Dry roast 4 tablespoons of urad dal over medium heat until they’re aromatic and light golden brown (remember to stir frequently). Remove from heat and let the dal cool. Next, pour the roasted urad dal to a blender/grinder then grind until they turn into fine flour.
Learn how to make urad dal flour in just 1 minute.
Step 2: Make The Murukku Dough
In a bowl, combine the urad dal flour, rice flour, salt, ajwain, and sesame seed. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil and add to the mixture, mix well. Gradually add water and mix the flour to make the dough. Do not knead, you want the dough to be non-sticky with no crumbs.
Use the dough immediately after making. Otherwise, your murukku will absorb too much oil.
Step 3: Prepare The Murukku
Lightly grease the murukku mold and the star-shaped plate. Add oil into a kadai and heat it on medium heat. Fill ¾ of the mold with dough. Press the mold to release the dough and make spiral-shaped murukku on aluminum foil, parchment paper, or muslin cloth.
Step 4: Check The Oil
Increase the heat to medium-high. Drop some dough into the oil to check whether it has become hot enough. If the oil has reached the right temperature, the dough will rise steadily instead of sinking and won’t turn brown.
Step 5: Fry The Murukku
Transfer the murukku to a spatula or ladle and place it in the oil. Your murukku will slide off the spatula automatically. Alternatively, you can simply gently drop each murukku into the oil. Fry on medium-high heat until they turn golden brown and crunchy. Stir frequently.
Step 6: Let Cool And Enjoy
Drain your murukku on paper towels and let them cool completely before enjoying. You can store murukku in an airtight jar for up to 1 month.
7. Banh Xeo (Vietnamese Crepes)
Banh xeo (Vietnamese crepes) is an essential street snack in Vietnam. The crispy batter is fried to a golden yellow then filled with shrimp, pork, bean sprouts, and shallots. To enjoy the dish to the fullest, remember to roll it in vegetables and serve with fish sauce.
Outside Vietnam, banh xeo is also popular as street food in Cambodia. In this neighboring country, the locals call it banh chao.
Rice flour, all-purpose flour and coconut cream are the secrets to delicious, crispy banh xeo’s batter. If you’re sensitive to gluten, you can swap out the all-purpose flour and use more rice flour instead. However, the crepes won’t be as crispy.
For making the banh xeo:

How To Make Banh Xeo
Are you ready to make some mouth-watering Vietnamese crepes? Let’s get started!
Step 1: Make The Dipping Sauce
In a bowl, mix the sugar and water well. You can heat about ⅓ of the water to help the sugar dissolve better. Add lime or lemon juice to taste. Lastly, add fish sauce to your liking and top it with chili and garlic. Mix well.
Step 2: Make The Batter
Combine the rice flour, all-purpose flour, turmeric, coconut cream and salt in a large bowl. Let the batter rest for 3 hours and up to overnight.
Step 3: Make The Fillings
Soften the mung beans by steaming or soaking them in water. Boil and slice the pork thinly. Wash other vegetables and the bean sprouts.
Step 4: Saute the Fillings
Add 1-2 teaspoons and some slices of onions into a frying pan over medium-high heat. Next, add some pieces of pork and shrimp then saute them until they turn slightly brown and aromatic. Remember to mix them lightly.
Step 5: Add The Batter
Pour a thin layer of batter into the pan. Tilt and rotate the pan to evenly distribute the batter. If you accidentally added too much batter, you can thin it out with a few tablespoons of water.
Step 6: Cook The Batter With The Lid Closed
Reduce heat to medium then throw in some bean sprouts, mung beans and cover the lid. Cook for about 3 minutes.
Step 7: Remove The Lid And Cook Until Crisp
Remove the lid and lower the flame to medium-low. Cook for another 5 to 7 minutes or until the crepe becomes crisp. After that, fold the crepe in half and transfer to a plate. Serve while hot with vegetables and dipping sauce.
Here’s a just-as-tasty vegetarian banh xeo recipe for my vegan readers.
To make vegetarian banh xeo, replace the shrimps with shredded fried tofu and swap out the fish sauce for soy sauce. As for the pork, change it for an array of your favorite mushrooms which also provides an umami, meaty flavor.
For egg-filled banh xeo, whisk 4-5 eggs and pour a thin layer over each crepe after the batter hits the skillet. Next, close the lid to let the egg cook for about 1 minute, then continue on with the fillings as instructed.
