This recipe is a no fail recipe ,so go ahead and get your hand blender or beater,and within minutes you would have a thick,creamy and tasty mayo.
I love the inclusion of mint mayonnaise in sandwiches like cucumber ,tomato ,egg…,, and the addition of mayonnaise in non vegan
food will complement with any combination.
Mayonnaise can be flavoured into herbal,spicy,nutty and countless variations . Using a little bit of imagination and innovation will
create a blast of flavours .
So no more buying mayonnaise,you can create your own flavours in the comfort of your home .
Using mustard and pepper powder is purely your choice . I’m giving you the recipe with 1 egg which will produce a teacup of
mayonnaise.You could use a little maths to increase the quantity 😊.
To the recipe
Oil ( 3 times the volume of egg )-vegetable oil/olive oil
2 tsp vinegar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp mustard powder (optional)
1/2 tsp pepper powder(optional)
Break the egg into a small bowl and mark the volume of the egg .
Measure 2.5 -3 (in the same cup you had the egg ).
Put all the ingredients into a bowl and blend till thick and creamy .
Mint-Grind a handful of mint leaves with minimal water/lime juice and add to the mayonnaise.
Basil-Same as Mint
Capsicum/Capers -Grind coarsely and add .
Roasted Garlic-Roast a few cloves of garlic in butter till brown and mince fine.
Nuts-Add coarsely ground nuts/Roasted nuts.
Green-You could grind 3-4 green chillies/or 1/2 of a capsicum
Boiled potato cubes +Pineapple

I have given a few variations which could be used as dips,salads,added to wraps,sandwiches and served with fried food/starters.
