Delicious Natto Croquette

Delicious Natto Croquette (Even if you don’t like natto!)

The potato and deep-fry process of this dish makes it luring even to natto haters (my serious natto hater husband can handle this dish! He said he can kill the flavour with tomato sauce… oh dear…). For beginners and people who don’t appreciate natto flavour, you can start from one pack of natto and increase the input later.



  • 3 packets of natto (1 pack is 45 grams)  
  • 4 large potatoes (about 450 grams)  
  • 4 tablespoons chopped parsley  
  • 1.5 teaspoons salt  
  • 1 small onion  
  • Breadcrumbs  
  • Wholemeal flour 


  1. Steam potato and mash. 
  2. Slowly fry the onion in oil. 
  3. Mix mashed potato, salt, parsley and natto. 
  4. Divide into 8 and shape into rounds. 
  5. Coat with flour, then soy milk and roll into bread crumbs. 
  6. Shallow fry the croquette until golden brown. 
  7. Serve with BBQ sauce or tomato sauce.


  • To achieve the gluten-free version, use rice flour or corn starch instead (rice flour gives a crispier outcome) and use gluten-free breadcrumbs.
  • If you are still in the stage of “getting used to natto”, you can start with one or two packets of natto but if you LOVE natto, go for 4 packets!!!
