Ithink Google would be a better friend to you: all these recipes are all over the net!

Oddly enough, I had the same question yesterday and found the answer in minutes.

Go Google!

i suspect that the mayonnaise and tartare sauce you make at home will not be much like the stuff that mcdonalds use.

mayonnaise when home made generally consists of olive oil and egg yolks, but if you check out the ingredients list for commercially prepared mayonnaise you'll discover heaps of additives - flavourings, colours, preservatives, goodness knows what else. and the same is probably true of tartare sauce.

as nick said, googling for recipes will find you heaps (never forget, google is your best friend ), but seeing as how i'm already typing, i'll give you the domestic goddess's recipe for mayonnaise:

2 egg yolks, at room temperature
225ml groundnut or sunflower oil
75ml olive oil
juice of 1/2 lemon

add the yolks to a bowl and start whisking (hand whisk ok, but an electric whisk, NOT a food processor, will be a damn sight quicker).
after a few minutes star adding the groundnut oil - a drop at a time (quite literally, do not hurry).
when the mixture starts to resemble mayonnaise (thick and creamy) you can then add larger amounts of the oil at a time.
next add the olive oil, in the same way - a small amount at a time.
when the mayonnaise is thick, smooth and firm add a few drops of lemon juice, still whisking all the time.
taste and add more lemon juice, salt and pepper as desired.

Yes Nick but DID you make it. Google is great but experience better.

My recipe, when in India is ,

Using a stick baloon whisk, Braun. and a container not much wider than the whisk, ie tall and thin

1....Separate the yolk and white

2.....Grate some garlic

3....Dried mustard, or bottled.

Whisk yolk together with some of 1 and 2 to taste,[ less to start with]
some salt and pepper with a modicum of sugar.

Add SLOWLY oil, sunflower, a dribble at a time, when the mixture starts to thicken add oil in a small stream, amalgamation should have happened, if it separates start again.

Now you can add some of the egg white to loosen the mixture,

If you wish you can now add some olive oil, for added flavour,

Lastly add some lemon juice, or wine vinegar, lemon being easily available, gives the right tang, to my taste . Check seasoning and adjust.

Sorry I am not a person who, like some in India cooks by the book.

Taste all the time and adjust to your taste.

This will taste fantastic. REAL FOOD

And once you have your mayonnaise, and the recipe above is a good starting place, you can add all kinds of things to it . . . finely diced onions . . . garlic(for ailoi) . . . any particular spice(s) you like . . . and, as a personal chef, I can and do make mayonnaise in a food processor. But for small batches a hand whisk is fine. Bon Appeitite!

Tartar sauce is simply mayonnaise with sweet relish added. That green stuff they put on hotdogs and hamburgers.

Mmmmmm....

No I didn't try it, but now I'm tempted

What are those seeds called that are always in tartar sauce? Damn... I can't remember*... Available in India?

Hal, that is not what Tartar sauce in UK is: it is not sweet, not green, and it is served specifically with fish.



*Gerkins, perkins, merkins? Nope.

CAPERS!

Sometimes I can get the good stuff out of my brain by drawing off the rubbish first!

They serve Mayonnaise with Mc Veggie here in India
Do they make it known to their "vegetarian" (who don't eat egg as well) customers?

Well, they lost a big case over frying their chips in animal oil (in US, I think?) --- but it is also up to vegetarians to take responsibility too.

Of course, if they print the ingredients on the package, that will serve.

Mayonnaise has nothing to do with cheese!
You don't need olive oil to make it, normal sunflower oil will do it. You can add some mustard. Use it fresh and keep prepared food in the fridge (not for long), raw eggs can cause food poisoning (salmonella), especially in a hot climate.

Mayonnaise at Mc Donalds doesn't have to contain eggs, for industrial produced mayonnaise they use so many additives that they don't need eggs anymore.

First prize for least India-related topic ever! Ha!

Relevant when it comes to life in general, though.
