We are special kind of vegetarians. Don’t know how many of you are like us. We don’t eat eggs as such but eggs in cakes and other store bought foods is okay for us 😅. Many of our friends tease us for it as we are not strict vegetarian nor a perfect “eggetarian”. Somewhere a mix of both and hence fall in a unique category 😂.
So since we fall in this unique category, we don’t mind mayonnaise inside our sandwiches from cafes (as eggs are not visible to the eyes, you see 🙈).
But while making at home, I make this eggless Mayonnaise with my Whole wheat bread and it makes a delicious combination. Though this mayonnaise is not very healthy due to corn flour in it (corn flour is a refined flour and does not have nutrition), I make it as it’s far better than store bought ones which have loads of preservatives in it. Anyhow when making a sandwich with wheat bread and vegetables, the nutrition level raises.
Hope you all try and like it too. Happy and healthy cooking!
1 Cup Milk (to be used as 1/2 + 1/2 Cup)
3 Tbsp Corn flour
2 Tbsp Olive oil
1 tsp Sugar
1 tsp Vinegar
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
1/4 tsp Pepper powder
Salt to taste
Step by step recipe:
1. Take 3 Tbsp corn flour in a bowl. Add 1/2 Cup milk and whisk well to form a lump free mix. Keep aside.
2. Now heat 1/2 Cup milk in a pan. When it turns hot, add the corn flour mix. Whisk continually.
Note: Be sure to stir the mix before adding as corn flour tends to settle at the bottom.
3. Whisk well for about 5 mins. It will get thick. When it turns thick and glossy like as shown in the picture, it is done.
4. Now remove and allow to cool. Grind in a mixer for few seconds. (to ensure that there are no lumps and the mayonnaise is smooth in texture.)
5. Now remove in a bowl and add sugar, salt, pepper powder, vinegar and olive oil.
6. Crush mustard seeds using a mortar and pestle.
7. Add it to the mayonnaise.
8. Mix well. Done!
* Mustard seeds powder can be substituted with store bought mustard sauce.
* I add coconut oil instead of olive oil sometimes.
* Be sure to whisk the corn flour well with milk both times to avoid lumps.
* Grinding ensures smooth texture of the mayonnaise. So I would suggest you to not skip it.
* This tastes really similar to store bought mayonnaise which has egg in it or even the veg mayonnaise which has released in market. But sans any preservatives and is much healthier.
