    1. Hello!! I’ll try to answer your question as best as I can –
      1) Grinding dry rice directly in your home mixer (no matter how powerful it is) may not give you the smoothest flour. And you can’t stand forever trying to get a fine rice flour. In my experience (well, in my mom’s, actually! 😀 ) soaking the rice for around 30-60 minutes (not more) and then letting it dry almost (not completely) will make it easy for you to grind the flour at home.

      2) We usually use this rice flour to make a lot of Indian snacks (like this – http://foodomania.com/kai-murukku/ ) Since they are deep fried, using this flour gives a whiter, smoother finish to the product than directly ground rice flour

      Hope this helps! Don’t let the soaked rice dry up completely. When it is almost dry – and yet slightly damp, grind it!

      1. I’m still a bit confused. The recipe says to soak the “rice flour” in water for 30-60 mins, then dry for 10 mins, yet in the above comment you say not to soak the “rice” for more then 10 mins.

        Do you start with rice, or with rice flour, and do you soak for 30-60 mins, or for 10 mins?
