Glutinous rice flour 糯米粉 (nuò mǐ fěn)

Contrary to its name, glutinous rice flour does not contain gluten and is fine for gluten-free diets. It is made from a type of short-grain rice that becomes very sticky and gluey when cooked. You can find this flour at Asian grocery stores.
Sometimes it is called sticky rice flour.
