    1. I used homemade rice flour.To prepare homemade rice flour,soak raw rice ( pachari) in water for about 45 to 60 minutes.Drain the water completely using a colander.Leave it in the colander for about 15 to 30 minutes ,until completely drained.Grind the drained rice to form a fine powder and pass it trough a fine mesh sieve to remove large grains.
