Lemon and chilli mayonnaise

Homemade mayonnaise is so much better than any store bought varieties , firstly because of its lovely taste , nice color and the fact that you can add most of your favorites flavor ( chilli , garlic , herbs……) . It only require five minutes and two important rules : Add the oil slowly and beat well . I used rapeseed oil to my mayonnaise to give a deep yellow color but sunflower or olive oil will do. You can use this recipe as a base by replacing the lemon juice by vinegar or  replace the chilli with garlic , herbs , smoked paprika  and many more .
