Can ordinary flour be used in place of rice flour?

Ordinary flour, also known as wheat flour, can't be used as a reliable substitute for rice flour. Wheat flour has different properties. Rice flour takes on the flavor of the food it is prepared with, while wheat flour has a strong flavor of its own. Rice flour does not contain gluten, which acts as a binding agent, and wheat flour does. Wheat flour tends to form clumps of dough when mixed with water, while rice flour tends to form a smooth batter, the consistency of thick paste. If you substitute wheat flour for rice flour in a recipe, the taste, texture, and amounts used will be incorrect and the recipe may fail completely. Corn starch, tapioca starch and potato starch are better substitutes for rice flour.
