Chop the pineapple into very small pieces and add to a pan with the sugar. Take it to the stove on low heat, stirring frequently. When it starts to boil, add the oil. Cook for approximately 10 minutes, until most of the liquid has evaporated (picture).

Remove from the heat and add the shredded coconut. If you are rolling it into balls, add the coconut slowly, until it reaches the right consistency. Don’t add too much shredded coconut otherwise it might get too dry to shape. Grease your hands, shape it into balls and cover them with more shredded coconut.
