Fried Pineapple Rolls

Hi there everyone.
Hope all is well and good with each of you. I, as usual, am going on with my life. Nothing really exciting so far, basically, work and home affairs. In fact, I had just returned home an hour ago, and right now I am staring at my laptop. I really can't decide what should be the trigger start. Really, I can't decide. Or maybe, I should shut down my laptop and do nothing except sat in front of the tv. Then again, old habits die hard, call it the blogging habit which seemingly I can't let go. Thank god, I managed to pull out this Fried Pineapple Roll recipe from my collection, shall we get to the recipe now? Of course. Made with ready made pastry sheets which has been comfortably cushioning in my fridge for a while, Fried Pineapple Rolls is pretty much an easy preasy dessert actually. Nothing really complicated (Sujee Cake, Semolina LadooOndeh Ondeh & Bingka Pisang), and one which is fried instead of baked (Bread Cheesy Rolls & Bread Sardine Rolls), pastry sheet filled with pineapple and crushed peanuts, rolled and deep fried, its crispy on the outside and with a sweet, tangy and nutty burst at the first bite (Almond Brownies, Honeydew Sago Dessert, Mango Sticky Rice & Sago Payasam).

Canned pineapple will save a whole of time. 
For a vegetarian version, seal the edges  of the sheets with corn flour mixed with some water. 
Roll out sheets as thick or thin as you like. 
Ingredients are estimates, do feel free to adjust as per your taste. 
Yum into these rolls once fried. Otherwise, the crunch is gone.  
8 sheets (4 x 4) pastry sheets
1/2 cup chopped pineapple
2 tbsp roasted crushed peanuts
Sugar (as needed)
A pinch of cinnamon
1 egg - light beaten
Flour (as needed)
Oil for deep frying. 

Combine pineapple, peanuts, sugar and cinnamon for the filling.
Keep aside. 
Dust flour over sheet and roll out with a rolling pin to stretch out.
Scoop a bit of the filling, place in the centre of the rolled sheet and brush the edges with egg.
Gently and tightly roll the sheet.  
With a fork, poke the roll just here and there.  
Do the same to the rest of the sheets, ie - roll, roll again after filling and poke holes. 
Once done, fry in batches, then drain over kitchen towel and serve immediately. 
A scoop of ice cream with these rolls surely will take you to heaven.
