Here are some common uses for ground rice:

  1. Baking: Rice flour is often used in gluten-free baking as a substitute for wheat flour. It can be used to make cakes, cookies, bread, and other baked goods.

  2. Thickening agent: Ground rice can be used as a thickening agent in soups, sauces, and gravies. It helps to add body and texture to these dishes.

  3. Coating and breading: Rice flour can be used as a coating for fried foods, such as chicken or fish. It creates a crispy and light texture when deep-fried.

  4. Noodles and dumplings: Rice flour is a key ingredient in many Asian dishes, particularly for making noodles and dumplings. It is commonly used in recipes like rice noodles, rice cakes, and rice dumplings.

  5. Baby food: Ground rice is often used as a base for homemade baby food. It can be cooked and blended into a smooth puree, providing a nutritious and easily digestible option for infants.

  6. Thickening agent in skincare: Rice flour is also used in some skincare products, such as face masks and exfoliants. It is believed to have gentle exfoliating properties and can help absorb excess oil from the skin.


Here's a basic recipe for making tuwo using ground rice:


  • 2 cups of ground rice (rice flour)
  • Water
  • Salt (optional)


  1. In a large pot, bring about 4 cups of water to a boil. You can adjust the amount of water depending on the desired consistency of your tuwo.

  2. In a separate bowl, mix the ground rice with a little water to make a smooth paste. The amount of water needed may vary, but start with about 1 cup of water.

  3. Gradually pour the rice paste into the boiling water while stirring continuously with a wooden spoon or whisk. This helps prevent lumps from forming.

  4. Continue stirring the mixture vigorously until it thickens. The tuwo should become stiff and start to pull away from the sides of the pot.

  5. Reduce the heat to low and cover the pot. Allow the tuwo to simmer for about 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent it from sticking to the bottom of the pot.

  6. Taste the tuwo and season with salt if desired. Stir well to incorporate the salt into the mixture.

  7. Remove the pot from the heat and let the tuwo cool slightly. It will become firmer as it cools.

  8. Once the tuwo has cooled down, wet your hands with water and shape the tuwo into small balls or mold it into a mound shape.

  9. Serve the tuwo with your choice of soup or stew, such as egusi soup, okra soup, or ogbono soup.
