Servings 1 cup


  • Egg White - 1 fridge cold
  • Garlic - 4 cloves
  • Salt to taste
  • Lemon Juice - 1 to 2 tsp
  • Oil - ¾ cup to 1 cup


  • Take garlic, salt, egg white and lemon juice in a blender and puree till smooth.
  • Now add in oil little by little and keep blending till it gets fluffy.
  • Dont add it too fast, add little by little.
  • Now remove it and chill for few hours before serving.


1)Use cold egg white. Never make the blender hot, else the mix will curdle.
2)Use garlic as needed, you can add more or less.
3)Add oil little by little in a steady stream. If you add too much oil at one time it will curdle.
4)If your garlic sauce split or curdled. Take the whole sauce in a cup and add 1 cold egg white in the blender and add the curdled mix little by little and keep blending till it gets thick.
5)If you have a blender jar with removable top lid then pour oil through the lid when blending on a steady stream till the sauce is fluffy.
6)Chill the sauce for 1 to 2 hours before serving for best taste.
