    Can i change the rice with water mixture then blended for rice flour and water? Will it be the same?

  • admin:

    Yes it can be used but I’m not sure about the measurement on how many cups of rice flour. Maybe you can weight the 2 cups dry malagkit rice and use that weight on the rice flour. I think 1 cup of rice is equivalent to 200 grams.
