  1. hi
    can i use rice flour for rice halwa.

  2. Hi Jayashree,

    You can use rice flour. But when you grind the soaked rice along with coconut, it will give nice flavour to the halwa. If you use rice flour, then add coconut to the flour and grind it for two to three rounds in a mixie with little water and prepare this halwa. Or slightly fry the rice flour and use it. But it will be like “Thiruvathirai Kali”.

  3. isn’t this more like sweet pongal???
