How to Prepare
    • Wash the sweet potatoes and pressure cook them for up to 3-4 whistles. Make sure the water covers the potatoes.
    • Once done, cool the sweet potatoes, remove their skin and roughly chop into 4-5 pieces.
    • Take a masher and mash them well, making sure there are no small chunks left.
    • Add maida and knead them with light hands to prepare a dough.
    • Divide the dough into eight equal portions.
    • Make small-sized balls from the dough.
    • Take a single dough ball, flatten it, add a single pistachio in the middle and again roll it into the shape of a ball. Do the same with the remainder and keep them aside.
    • In a pan, combine sugar and water and cook them on a low flame, stirring occasionally until a sticky and thick sugar syrup is formed.
    • Once done, switch off the flame, add the cardamon powder and mix well.
    • In a cauldron (kadai), fry the dough balls. Make sure the oil is neither too hot nor too cold. It is best to fry on a medium flame.
    • When the jamuns turn golden brown, take them out on a kitchen paper towel to remove extra oil.
    • Now add them to the sugar syrup and cover with a lid for some time.
    • Once they get soaked completely and become soft, remove them from the syrup.
    • Serve hot.
  • You can replace sweet potatoes with potatoes, making sure the latter are small ones as they have a bit of sweetness in them.
