Mayonnaise Recipe

My sandwiches must have butter or mayonnaise. I simply cannot think of a decent sandwich without mayonnaise or butter. It really enhances the taste of the sandwich. I love mayonnaise but then it must have have a lot of calories judging from the ingredients but one can indulge once in a while. I am sure it is better than replacing it for butter for a sandwich if you are watching those calories. This recipe is from my Sumeet mixer cum grinder recipe book. It works well and I have made it several times over the years. If refrigerated, it could last for about a week or so if you make sure no water comes in contact during the process. But if you would like to have mayonnaise in your fridge all the time, then you can opt for American Garden's mayonnaise. I swear by it; it's the best store-bought one I have found among those that I tried. Mayonnaise can be used to make Russian salad which can also be used as a canape filling. Then it can be used as a sandwich spread and in chicken rolls. I will be showing you how to make chicken rolls some time soon. Till then you can master the art of making homemade mayonnaise.

How to make mayonnaise
3 eggs
1 tspn mustard
1 tbspn vinegar
1/2 tspn salt
1/2 tspn pepper
1.5 tspn sugar
3.5 cups salad oil or sweet oil
1/2 cup cream (optional)
1 tspn lemon juice

  • Break eggs into the mixer fitted with the whipper blade as you will be using the whipping button only.
  • Run the mixer at whipping speed for about 10 seconds or till eggs and light and fluffy.
  • Add the remaining ingredients except for the cream and oil.
  • Run mixer till all the ingredients are well blended.
  • While the mixer is running, slowly add the salad oil through the funnel
  • Blend till you get a thick consistency.You can stop here if you like. The mayonnaise still tastes great!
  • Stop the mixer.
  • Add cream and run the mixer again for 10 seconds or till well blended.
  • Store the mayonnaise in a jar and refrigerate.
  • Use it to make chicken rolls, as a sandwich spread or to make Russian salad to fill canapes or forminhas.
