Frozen short grain rice flour

Naengdong mepssalgaru 냉동 멥쌀가루

There are many different kinds of rice flour (Ssalgaru) but short grain rice flour (Mepssalgaru) is made with short grain rice and is used to make fluffy rice cakes like Mujigaeddeok (rainbow rice cake), among other things.

You can find this in the frozen section of a Korean grocery store. It’s sold frozen so that it’ll retain its moisture. If you can’t find it in a store, you can also make it at home with this recipe.

There is more information and discussion about making rice flour out of rice on the forum.

    안녕하세요 i went to korean grocery store in paris and found 쌀가루 (and yes it s written in korean) but it wasn’t in the frozen section.. And when i visited the frozen section they don’t have 쌀가루 in there so i decided to bought the one i found before to make 가래떡.. But after rewatched ur video and read some comments, found out that “frozen flour” was seem really important.. Furthermore when i read the package thouroughly, i found out that it was produced in america.. So do you think it is still short grain rice flour? Can i still use it to make 가래떡?
    Thank you for the respons :D

    I love your rainbow rice cake recipe but I’m still troubled with the flour… you said that it can be homemade too… Is sweet rice = sticky,glutinous rice? Please let me know.
