This Was Attempted with Long Grain White Rice
It was a dirty job, loud, and in some ways, unsatisfying.
Nope - Not a Fast Process
The more you chop, the more gets chopped. However, the motor on the chopper does start to get warm. It's almost easier to just buy a bag of rice flour.
Of course, there is rice flour readily available at our store at this time, but, someday, it may not be as readily available. So, that's why I chopped some in my small food processor. I did flip the blade over for fine chopping.
I think a coffee grinder would work better, but I think I sent mine home with my son for sausage spice grinding. Ah, well...
Chop - Chop - Chop - Chop

After reading the comments, I'll bet that instant rice would be pulverized more quickly into rice flour. That is a good idea if one cannot get to the store to buy rice flour.

Denise McGill, thank you for your comment. Sorry it took so long to acknowledge...[ I could see it, but couldn't get there from here.. smile.] I'm going to try instant rice and see if it chops easier... I have also chopped peanuts fine, but then I added oil and made peanut butter... I digress...

There are times when you just can't jump in the car and go get something like rice flour. I can see where this could be a good way to go. Sometimes I come across a recipe that calls for oat flour and I have rolled oats but not oat flour. The same thing will work by putting the rolled oats into a food processor and chopping for a while. Good information and nice pictures.

Liz Westwood, thank you for your comment. I did this yesterday, so haven't used it yet. Have been using rice flour for first step in coating deep fried foods. For the flour, egg wash and cracker crumb foods...
