Story Behind this Recipe

The "Mrs. Corn" recipe that COOKPAD user Muu uploaded (Recipe ID: 396202) was really delicious, so I thought about making a "Mr. Okra" version. But when I checked my refrigerator I found I had some natto that was about to expire... I wondered if a natto fritter could be delicious?! I gave it a try and it was delicious. Enjoy it with plenty of lemon, grated daikon radish and soy sauce, or mentsuyu. Nutrition info per 1 serving - 431 kcal, 17.2 g protein, 24.8 g of fat, 33.4 g carbohydrates.
