Easy to make Mayonnaise Dip

I was searching for a home made mayonnaise recipe for ages, because I sort of distaste the mayonnaise which is usually available in the markets. During the search I came across many recipes from different websites, magazines and blogs but those didn't really satisfy my expectation ! Mostly because those recipes contain one ingredient or other which is not available in the nearby market and supermarket. Finally after a long wait one day I accidentally found what I was actually looking for in my mom's recipe diary !! This recipe contains very easy to find ingredients and the method is also quite easy. And yes it tastes yummy too ! Hopefully it will be helpful for you as well. Now to cut the long story short , let's give you the recipe -

Ingredients: a) 1 egg yolk (kept at room temperature)
                     b) 90 ml salad oil ( olive oil or any refined vegetable oil)
                     c) 1 tbsp lime juice
                     d) 1/2 tsp mustard (I used English mustard)
                     e) 1/4 tsp sugar
                     f) salt to taste

Method:  First, whisk the egg yolk in salad oil drop by drop with the help of a balloon whisk or rotary mixer. Add seasonings to it. When half the oil has been added, pour half the lime juice and continue whisking, adding oil gradually till you get a smooth emulsion. At this point add rest of the lime juice and check for seasonings. And .... tadaaa its done !!

Oh yes ... its that simple ...

You can refrigerate this mayonnaise for future use but do not keep it for long as it has no added preservative.

That's all. Happy Cooking !! :)
