Hi Madhura, What is Glutinous rice flour ?? Is is ok if I skip this ingredient ??
No Image Madhura :     7 September 2013
You can skip it if you don't have it but it helped me to make modak better and did not break. Its also called as sticky rice, sweet rice or waxy rice is a type of rice grown mainly in Southeast and East Asia, which has opaque grains, very low amylose content, and is especially sticky when cooked.
