Prawn masala cups

Mashallah we are nearing the end of this Ramadan . Working hard to our better deen and cleansing ourself soulfully with dhikr (chantings) and zakath , tharaweeh and still we have so much more to make duas for ourselves . With the time running out it is sense of sadness ... something i cant describe . How time flies during Ramadan . Last 10 days  of Ramadan . The most blessed of all nights and we must attain as much as we can from the prayers asking for forgiveness. The mosques are filling with more crowd amd it is  during these last nights for prayers considered better than thousand nights   ( Laylatul Qadr) that we ask for all good deeds be accepted and sins forgiven ... Ameen. 

Coming to today’s recipe – anything oil free goes out well on the iftar table .this is   unusually  rare presentation of a steamed rice cups filled with prawn masala and fried rice balls.! Lots a pretty easy and lovely colorful idea of a snack to be served in iftars .and kids passed it to be cup pizza. Such crazy ideas came up and i just went by to recreate for our snacks and i wanted  something oil free . And meat free too . Feel free to change the recipe to a filling of your choice .  I used my cupcake moulds  so got a dozen done at one go.
