Fried chicken-flavor rice spread going on sale in Japan to keep your 'karaage' cravings satisfied

Despite the indigenous cuisine’s image as mildly seasoned and healthy, Japan loves fried chicken. Fried chicken is the archetypal Christmas Eve dinner in Japan, and all-you-can-eat karaage (Japanese-style fried chicken) deals have become a beloved part of Tokyo’s cheap dining scene.

Japan even shows an innovative flair in creating new ways for people to enjoy fried chicken, like with KFC-flavored potato chips and girls’ feet-flavor fried chicken. And now comes a new way to get your karaage fix: spreadable fried chicken-flavor rice topping.

Among other foodstuffs, Japanese company Marumiya makes furikake, which are powdered topping for rice made with dried egg, vegetables, meat, or fish. Marumiya also sells what it calls “spreadable furikake,” which are moister than orthodox furikake, and the newest member of the line is the karaage mayonnaise flavor, pictured directly above.

The ground chicken is seasoned with ginger and garlic, both must-haves when making karaage, and mayonnaise. While it doesn’t appear to be deep-fried, the spread should mimic the taste of Japanese-style deep-fried bird, and add some satisfying meaty protein to a bowl of white rice.

Karaage mayo spreadable furikake goes on sale Feb 22, priced at 250 yen for a 100-gram jar. And if you crave even more fried food facsimiles, you can combine it with the new potato chip flavor furikake that just went on sale for extra decadence.
