Hi does anyone know if you can get ground rice here in France? If so what is it called?

Cheers Kaz

You can get rice flour at a Bio shop

It's not rice flour, it is ground rice, I am sure it a totally different thing, but thanks for reply.

Could you grind rice up in a food processor?

Googled Ground Rice and came up with these answers:

www.ochef.com

www.riceassociation.org.uk

Looks like all the answers to your question have been about right. I'd say that Creusebear's grinding rice in a food processor to the grain size you want would be about right.

There again, I'm a man and no expert but just trying to help.

Best regards

Haven't seen ground rice but semolina is very similar and can be used as a substitute in baking. Semolina is readily available in most supermarkets - in Intermarche it's on a shelf near the couscous/rice.

Semolina and ground rice often have the same properties in cooking so unless you're planning on making 'ground rice pudding', as maryr says, use semolina (semoule I think) It IS available in all the supermarkets and is vey cheap too! I use it for coating roast potatoes after par-boiling! Good Luck but if you really need some, I'm over at Easter and live near Cressat so could bring some over for you!

Hi

Thanks for your kind offer, I have already contacted some friends in the UK who will be coming over at Easter as well. I will also be trying the aisian shop in Limoges when we are next over there on an airport run!

Where is the Asian shop in Limoges? I do a lot of Indian cooking and I am always on the hunt for specialist ingredients.

Was just about to give you the same details as Tony but he beat me to it! Just note though that they close from 12.30 or 1 until 3pm. There is also supposed to be a large Asian shop in Chateauroux though I haven't managed to get to it yet.

Hi - returning to the Asian shop topic - does anyone know the name of it in Limoges or Chateauroux? Is there a chain or are they independent? I have a friend who has just started a 'curry delivery service' and is interested in getting authentic pastes. spices etc from France rather than mail order from UK.
Many thanks
