  1. Combine grated yam (taro) and all the other ingredients, except the bacon, in a mixing bowl.
  2. Optional: Fry the chopped bacon in 2 tablespoons of oil until crisp. Remove from pan and add (minus the oil) to the combined ingredients. If you like it, add in the finely chopped spring onions. Mix well together with the other ingredients. 
  3. Heat oil in deep frying pan over medium high heat. Put in enough oil to immerse completely the frying gateau arouille balls.
  4. Take one tablespoonful of the mixture at a time, mould into a round shape. If necessary, dust with or add some more corn flour to get mixture to bind together. Drop one by one into the oil and fry until golden brown.
  5. Drain on kitchen paper towels and serve immediately. A little bit of chilli sauce on top will make it even more enjoyable.
