Here’s How KFC Japan Made Deep-Fried Soup

Back in 2013, KFC Japan jumped on the popular corn potage trend that was big then, and added deep-fried soup to its menu (via Delish). According to Master Class, corn potage is similar to a corn chowder and contains creamed corn, chicken broth, onions, milk, cream, and butter. Delish states that the food fad was kicked off by popsicle brand Gari Gari-kun that had added a corn potage flavor to its line of frozen treat products. It was such a hit that stores had trouble keeping it in stock. The soup then soon became a staple on Japanese café menus. 

While it’s marketed as deep-fried soup (and really what could be more delicious than that?), KFC’s concoction was really just breaded corn fritters with a “soft and creamy” center. According to The Huffington Post, the nuggets were made by covering a ball of corn potage in a batter and then deep-frying them in hot oil. SoraNews24 also explains that, according to a KFC Japan press release, the recipe they used was inspired by a recipe for potato and bacon fritters that was originally featured in Colonel Sanders’ autobiography. For now the item has only been seen in Japan but maybe it’ll make it to the States soon if we’re lucky.
