There is rice flour from Thailand available in the Chinese grocery store.

This is the way to make rice flour, but I have never tried it myself, it is
too complicated.

Soak rice in water for 2-3 hours, keep a little bit of water, and drain away
the excess, put the rice and water in a blender, blend for a while,(or stone
grind it), pour the grinded rice inside a cloth bag, put the bag in a seive
or on something with holes so that the water can be drained away, put
something heavy on top of the bag to help draining out the water for a few

What is left inside the bag is rice flour, if you are not using it
immediately, you will need to dry it before keeping.
