1. Boil a cassava for about 15 minutes. Drain the water and let it cool down.
2. In a large bowl, mash the boiled cassava. Add the white sugar and the salt and mix. Roll about 1 tablespoon of the mixture in your hands until becomes a little ball. Roll as many balls as the ingredients allows and place on a plate.
3. Heat up a large pan full of cooking oil on medium-high. Place a few balls one at a time in the pan and deep fry. Once the balls have browned, begin to add the brown sugar to the pan. Mix the balls and sugar around until the balls are completely caramelized.
4. Remove the balls with a spoon and make sure you strain the excess oil. Serve on a platter of your choosing or stick the balls with skewers and serve.
