Default Rice flour

I have a couple of recipes that call for gram and rice flours
combined. I have the gram flour, but have never seen rice flour. Now
I do have 19 pounds of rice left G, and wonder if I could grind it
raw or would I need to cook, dry and then grind it to make rice
flour? I suppose I could go out and _buy_ some, but just wonder if
there's some way I could get by with what I have.

You should be able to buy the rice flour where you bought the gram
flour. Keep in mind that sticky rice flour is made from a different sort
of rice.

To make rice flour, the rice needs to be washed, soaked for an hour or
two, then drained well and then ground/pounded. Sift it before using.
