Can you make a properly browned roux with rice flour?

Pengyew is shooting for a gluten-free gumbo. The fat is in the pot.

I've seen recipes that call for white rice flour or sweet rice flour. Some do talk about getting the roux dark. I suspect the brown rice flour will work, but haven't tried it.

Sweet rice flour works best for me, but I've never tried to get it to be well-browned, just a bit browned. Sweet rice flour thickens well and doesn't clump up as readily as regular wheat flour. I usually use slightly less sweet rice flour than usual and more fat than the recipe calls for. Other rice flours don't thicken as well as sweet rice flour--you're more likely to end up with a gritty mush.

@le bec fin: I haven't found my roux to be gritty with sweet rice flour. It's very finely ground, which helps to keep that from happening. It's almost as fine as a starch. Brown rice flour is coarse in comparison. I'm glad it helped!
