How is mayonnaise made?

Some basic ingredients are needed to make mayonnaise-

  • 2 egg yolks
  • 250 ml mustard oil
  • 1 tsp white vinegar or lemon juice
  • Seasonings (salt, pepper, any other herbs)

What is the way to make it-

To make this, you have to beat the eggs very quickly and with that you add seasonings and then when it mixes very well then a small drop of oil is added. After this, it is mixed well again and then another drop is added. This is done until you understand that both the oil and the egg will mix well together.

If you are making vegan mayo, use 120 ml of soy milk instead of eggs and apple cider vinegar instead of vinegar. If you do not like mustard oil, then you can use any vegetable oil instead.
