Homemade Mayonnaise Recipe / How to Make Mayonnaise / Chilli Aioli Recipe / Garlic Aioli Recipe / Aioli Recipe / Garlic Mayonnaise Recipe

There comes the ultimate dipping sauce. One of my all time favorite, i can slather this sauce in all this edible. There is nothing compared homemade, i dont prefer that jarred mayo which they have packed years back. I love that creamy goodness which is made fresh at home. It taste really yummy, you got to try this one..

Whenever i make mayo at home, i add some garlic, because garlic mayo is seriously addictive. I have got so many request from you all to post this recipe, and finally i made it couple weeks back. I decided to make two types of mayo, a spicy chilli mayo and a pungent garlic mayo..

I love to serve this with chicken fry, grilled chicken, chicken croquettes..It taste so good. But the most favorite dish of mine is fried onion rings, that is what i made..Will share the recipe soon..

You can check out my Homemade Sweet Chilli & Garlic Sauce too..

Preparation Time : 10 mins
Makes around 1 cup to 1.5 cup of mayo


Egg Yolk - from 2 large egg
Oil - 1 cup / 240 ml ( Use plain olive oil or vegetable oil ) , I used refined oil
Salt -  1 tsp
Lemon Juice - 2 tsp
Mustard Seeds - 1 tsp
Water - 1 tblspn

For flavouring mayo:
Chilli Flakes - 2 tsp
Garlic - 2 cloves


Start by making mustard powder. I didn't have any, so i took some whole mustard seeds in a mortar and pestle and crushed it to make powder. 

Take egg yolk(no whites please) in a small blender (use small jar from your blender), add in lemon juice, salt, water, mustard powder and blend them for 30 seconds. Now it must have turned little frothy.

Now add in 1/3 of the oil and blend it for 30 seconds.By this time it must have turned little thick.

Add in 1/3 of oil again and blend for 30 more seconds. By this time it must have turned little more thick.

Now add in the remaining oil and blend for 30 more seconds. Now you find the mayo to be thick and creamy.

You can use this as it is. Or go one step further like i did. I divided the mayo into two bowls. Add chilli flakes in one and minced garlic in other. Mix it well and serve with your favorite snacks. 


1)This can be stored in a air tight container for for 2 to 3 days in fridge.
2)Since it has raw eggs in it, always keep the mixture cool.
3)Use the small jar from your blender. Big jars wont work.
4) Only egg yolks should be used.So separate the egg yolk carefully.
5)If you find the mayo curdled. Dont panic. Start with a new batch. Take couple of egg yolks and use the curdled mixture as the oil, slowly add it and blend it. This way you will get a perfect mayo.

Take your ingredients

Take mustard in a crusher

Crush it..

Till you get nice powder

Take the small jar of your mixie

Start by separating a egg

You need yolk alone

I used 2 egg yolks
Add in lemon juice

Add in some water

Then goes some salt

Add in mustard powder

Cover it

And blend them

After 30 seconds  of blending

You will find the egg yolk mix little frothy

Now add 1/3 of the oil

cover and blend

You can see it has become little thick

Add the remaining 1/3 of oil

After blending it has become little more thick

Now add the remaining oil

cover and blend

See how thick it is

Creamy goodness

I decided to make 2 types of aioli
A garlic and chilli one

Add chilli flakes to one bowl of mayo

Mix it up

And i minced some garlic

and added it to another bowl

Mix it up

Serve with any of your favorite snacks

I served it with crispy onion rings

@Christofher JoyI think it will taste good. But add more garlic to get more garlic taste. And also some grated cheese on top would be good

Hi Aarthi

What is the shelf life for this mayo?
How do we preserve this? Since egg yolk is used I am concerned.
