Idlis - known in the Adam household as "fluffy clouds" - are a fast and flavorful breakfast treat which happens to be gluten-free. Cardamom, yogurt, coconut, and rice flour make this treat unique. You don't even need a whisk to make this!

Cooking Recipe

Ingredients:
1 cup all-purpose gluten free flour (usually a blend of rice flours, like King Arthur's brand)
2/3 cup sweetened desiccated coconut (can also use unsweetened and then add more sugar to the recipe)
1/4 - 1/3 cup sugar (depending on your sweet tooth)
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 pinches of ground cardamom (crushed from dried pods or 2-3 shakes from a pre-ground cardamom spice jar)
3/4 cup plain Russian style yogurt
butter

Directions:
1. Heat up your egg poacher on your stove.

2. Mix your rice flour, desiccated/dried shredded coconut, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and cardamom that is crushed and grounded. Then mix the ingredients well.

3. Add in the yogurt to the dry mix and lift and fold over to mix all the ingredients together.

4. Once your poacher is boiling add in a tiny bit of butter in each cup in the poacher. Now add in the batter into all the cups about ¾ of the way. Let them cook for 5-10 minutes.

5. Using some tongs lift the cups and tip them out till the cakes pop out. Slice them in half and add a little bit of butter with a little bit of sugar on top and serve to your kids!
