PINEAPPLE RAVA JAMUNS

Well friends, am not a great fan of sweets. But my hubby loves making sweets at home whenever he is free from his office works and it tastes great. I had always used making Gulab Jamun with readymade mix but one day my hubby tried making homemade Jamuns using rava and leftover pineapple. Hope you guys will love it.




INGREDIENTS.

1 cup Rava.
1 cup Milk.
1 cup Sugar.
2 cup Water.
1/2 cup finely chopped pineapple.
Oil for deep frying.

FOR MAKING SUGAR SYRUP.

1 cup Sugar.
1/2 cup Water.
1/2 tsp Cardamom powder.
1 tsp Lemon juice.

METHOD.

In a pan cook chopped pineapple with 2 cups of water till tender. Later add milk 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 lemon juice to clarify syrup. Remove the scum. 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.



Deep fry these in hot oil on low heat. When jamuns are golden brown, drain them and add to the hot syrup.


Serve as it is or along with ice cream.
