I have a question about step 2 on the recipe "Shrimp and Pork Dumplings" from edamame2003. It says:
"In a large mixing bowl whip 2 egg whites, add tapioca flour and lemon.
Can you use regular flour, if you don't have tapioca flour?
Francesca is the former Assistant Editor of food52 and believes you can make anything out of farro.
Unfortunately, I think tapioca flour is important here as it's more similar to corn starch in how it behaves than regular flour. It also has a flavor that edamame2003 probably was looking for...that being said, let's see if edamame2003 weighs in. Until then, here's an interesting bit I found on tapioca flour substitutes: http://www.buzzle.com/articles... . Do you have potato starch?
Thank you so much, your answer has been very helpful.
I can substitute corn starch for tapioca flour.
hi-i would substitute corn starch or rice flour. the flour is used to bind the ingredients together. I'm not sure how regular flour works, but if you have corn starch; it should do the trick. thanks for asking.
