Add the natto to the batter you made in Step 1 and mix well.
Heat up a frying pan, add 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil, and drop in spoonfuls the natto batter from Step 2 that are easy to eat sizes. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese thoroughly over the tops of the fritters.
Cook over medium heat. Once they are golden brown turn the fritters over. Cook the other side, being careful not to burn them. Once the other sides are browned too they are done.
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.
Please be careful not to burn the fritters. I have been asked about what to do with the included sauce and mustard that comes with a packet of natto. You can mix it into the batter as a flavoring, which is also delicious. Just be careful as adding the sauce and mustard makes the fritters even more liable to getting burnt.
