Pineapple jamuns:
This pineapple jamun I learned it from sumascuisine. I loved the recipe.. I tried and tasted very yummy. I prepared jamuns as per her method but I didn't add milk.

1 cup Sugar.
1/2 cup Water.
1/2 tsp Cardamom powder
In a pan cook chopped pineapple with 2 cups of water till tender. Later add water and let it come to boil at which point rava is added gradually. Keep stirring and take care not to form any lumps.
Simmer and let it cook for 5 min. Once rava is cooked, add the sugar and mix it well till sugar dissolves. After that set the mixture to cool.
For the sugar syrup, drop sugar and water in a pan and cook to make syrup. Add cardamom powder. Boil till the sugar turns to one threaded consistency. Transfer the syrup into serving dish.
Later knead the pineapple rava mixture into soft dough. Divide the dough into small balls. Later knead the pineapple rava mixture into soft dough. Divide the dough into small ball.
Deep fry these in hot oil on low heat. When jamuns are golden brown, drain them and add to the hot syrup.
