    Beat egg, egg whites, oil, vinegar and 1½ cups of the water in a large bowl of an electric mixer on medium speed for 3½ minutes. Add the combined sifted dry ingredients, 1 cup at a time, beating until combined between additions. Continue adding dry ingredients until mixture just starts to come away from the side of the bowl (add remaining water only if necessary). Turn dough onto a surface dusted with rice flour; knead lightly until smooth.
