This mayonnaise is made with cooked gram flour or besan in place of egg. This is a great recipe substitute for regular mayonnaise, for all those people who don’t eat egg.
To make Besan Mayo, You will need:
Oil (vegetable, olive or even cooked mustard oil) ¼ cup
Salt to taste
White Pepper powder to taste
Lemon Juice of 1 lemon
Mustard Sauce 1 teaspoon
Gram Flour or besan 1 tablespoon
Water 2 tablespoons
To Make Mayonnaise:
In a small pan, take 1 tablespoon besan, and add in 2 tablespoons of water and mix well.
Cook this mixture over medium heat, and mix thoroughly until the besan is fully cooked. Turn of the heat and mix again.
Once the mixture has thickened, pop it into a bowl.
Now add in, salt, white pepper, juice of 1 lemon, 1 teaspoon mustard sauce and whisk the mixture vigorously. Continue mixing for a few minutes to make it lump free. (You can also use an electric beater)
To make the mixture smooth, you can also pass it through a sieve.
Pop this smooth, lump free mixture back into a bowl. Now, start adding in 1 tablespoon of oil at time and continue mixing vigorously. Don’t add excess oil to the mixture, if you feel that the oil is not getting absorbed, you can stop adding in any more oil. The mixing should be vigorous so that the besan and oil mix together properly.
1 tablespoon of besan mixture will easily incorporate about ¼ cup of oil.
