  • Make into 1" to 1 1/2" balls and deep fry. (TIP: while forming, using two spoons. Then, immediately put into frying pan).
  • SAUCE: Boil 1 cup coconut milk and brown sugar until sticky. Dip karioka into the sauce and eat or pour/drizzle the sauce on the karioka. Skewer. Some people don't like their karioka sweet so they just roll/dust brown sugar on top of the karioka while its hot.
