No, they are not, but if you try to find what the difference is, you get confused real quick. There are recipes that say "potato starch not potato flour", but other than that I use them interchangeably and don't have a problem. The flour is a little more dense and the starch resembles tapioca or corn starch.

Potato flour or corn flour would work , but can you not buy ready mixed packs of gluten free flour for cooking and baking ? I buy Doves farm gluten and wheat free flour , self raising and plain and they can be used in all cooking . If not available in shops near you , you could probably get them online .

Gram flour(chick pea flour) is good also. Probably available in a health food store, bulk food store or Indian grocer..

Robin Hood and King Arthur both make a gluten free all purpose flour.

Most fish can be sautéed without flour.

There are many brands and variations of gluten free flour out there. If you are baking and cooking extensively gluten-free as I and many others here do, they can be great. I have one from my organic store that I use for basics, and I make my own mixes as well.

For a simple item like dredging fish, I think just using something like corn or potato starch that you might have on hand is easier. And yes, you don't have to dredge fish.

I've noticed that a bit of flour helps hold together delicate filets like flounder. Plus it tastes yummy. On another forum many people recommended Julie's all purpose gluten free flour. If I can't find it, I'll try corn starch, and make sure it's made from non GMO corn. I once tried chickpea flour, but it tasted a little weird.

NO! They are two different things.

Well I just bought the King Arthur GF flour at my local health food store, but I won't be using it for fish because it's so pricey. Corn flour might be my best bet.

As jennyema said, fish can be quite good without dredging in flour at all. Try that.
