How to make Mayonnaise Recipe

Written By Angela Steffi on Tuesday, November 1, 2016 | 10:28:00 PM

Mayonnaise is one of my favorite dipping sauce for many recipes. It is quite easy to make all we need is yolks, oil and some seasoning.Store bought mayonnaise often comes in a single flavor but homemade mayonnaise can be customized according to your taste preference.I have used whisk to beat but you can use electric beater or food processor to mix everything to speed up the process.


Serving Size          :   10 serving

Preparation Time : 20 minutes



2 Egg Yolks 
200 mlOil ( I have used sunflower oil)
1/4 tsp Mustard powder or 1 tsp Mustard sauce
1 tbsp Vinegar
2 tspLemon Juice
1/4 tsp Pepper powder
1/2 tsp Salt

Cooking Method

Step 1) Powder mustard seeds in a mortar and pestle and keep it aside.
In a bowl add 2 egg yolks and add the powdered mustard powder.If you have mustard sauce then use 1 tsp of mustard sauce instead of mustard powder.mix once.For 2 yolks we can use approximately 200 - 250 ml of oil

Step 2) Add oil drop by drop and beat it well , do not add too much of oil at once.If we add more oil at one go then the yolk and the oil will not combine well and we will end up in a clumsy mayonnaise so be very careful and add very little at a time and keep on mixing.After adding about half of oil add Vinegar, lemon juice, pepper powder and salt.Mix well and then continue to add oil slowly .Mix well with a wire whisk. 

Step 3) Once you get a thick smooth paste transfer the mayonnaise to a clean bottle and and put it in the fridge and use whenever needed.I have used exactly 200 ml of oil.

You can use an electric beater or food processor to speed up the process.
Use any flavorless oil for making Mayonnaise recipe.
