Cornstarch (pang khaow pod) – This fine white powder, made from corn (maize) is a useful thickening agent for sauces, soups and casseroles.
 
Rice flour (pang khaow jaow) – More finely milled than ground rice, this is also known as rice powder. The texture is similar to that of cornstarch. Rice flour is used for thickening sauces, and to make dessert.
 
Glutinous rice flour (pang khaow neow) – This flour is made from short-grain rice that becomes moist, firm and sticky when cooked, a result of its higher proportion of waxy starch molecules. Because of its chewy texture, glutinous rice flour is a favorite base for dumplings, buns and pastries.
 
Tempura flour (pang go gi) – This tempura flour can make meat or vegetables raise and crispy.
 
Tapioca flour (pang mun sum pa lung) – The flour is used as a thickening agent for soups, fruit fillings, glazes, etc., much like cornstarch.
