Finding the right Gluten Free flour mix or Gluten Free Atta mic will always be a struggle. If one mix works well for muffins, it might now be good for cakes or pooris. So you would have to try different flours for different recipes. My go to flour mix is this combination. Homemade gluten free all purpose flour is a good way to save money.
Making DIY gluten free flour blend costs less than you think:
Making your own gluten-free flour may seem like an investment, and it may take some work to collect all the ingredients you’ll need, but homemade flour blends are less expensive than the gluten-free flours sold in stores. There are many gluten free all purpose flours available in the market but they are extremely expensive, so it’s best you find your favourite mix and stick to it.
List of things to keep in mind while buying the flours:
Make sure to check and double check that the flours you’re buying are free from cross contamination. Make sure they are not processed in a facility that handles wheat or maida.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes
Potato Starch: 1/2 cup (use potato starch and not potato flour. Potato starch will provide you with light, fluffy baked goods. Whereas flour will be hard like stone).
Tapioca Starch: 1/4 cup
White Rice Flour: 1/4 cup
Brown Rice Flour: 1 +1/2 cup
Mix everything very well. Your flour blend is ready.
What all you can make with this?
Pancakes, muffins, cakes.. the list is limitless. But you might also have to buy a packet of xanthan gum. As the name suggests this gum keeps the flour together. As you know that gluten provides elasticity and flexibility, our flours don’t have gluten which means they lack the elasticity and the stickiness. The xanthan gum helps keep the flours together. I have used the gum while baking the Gluten Free bread, http://www.glutenfreeindian.com/soft-gluten-free-bread-recipe/
but haven’t used it for muffins, pancakes etc. You can buy a packet and keep, helps a lot while baking the bread or making naan etc.
