Curry Masala Mayonnaise

Curry Masala Mayonnaise

Really simple but incredibly versatile recipe that everyone should keep in their fridge for easy access.

This is a basic, fragrant Surinamese masala mayonnaise with a flavour intensity that will be love at first bite if you’re a curry masala addict, like me. It tastes fantastic when served with French fries or roasted root vegetables, but it also transforms a few simple cooked chicken breasts (add pineapple!) or hard-boiled eggs (add celery leaves!) into the most amazing salads in mere moments.

Heck, just dipping crusty French bread in this makes me really happy. My thighs? Not so much. And for the Dutchies: perfect condiment for a fondue or gourmet!

Try it. You won’t be sorry you did.

 

Ingredients:

1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
3 garlic cloves
1 1/2 tbsp curry masala
1/4 tsp ground cumin
pinch of dried chili flakes
1 + 1/4 cup mayonnaise (I use Hellmann’s)
juice of 1 lime
2 tbsp sunflower oil
salt to taste

 

Directions:

Heat the oil and sauté the chopped onion until soft but do not let them brown!

Add the garlic. My garlic cloves were monstrous! Obviously I didn’t add three of those or I still wouldn’t be allowed out in public today.

Mix the curry masala with the ground cumin and add it to the onion along with a pinch of dried chili flakes.

Cook for a minute or two while stirring now and then. Let the mix cool off completely before you move on with the recipe.
 

Put the mayo in a big bowl.

      “Instant” Masala! What a great idea! I don’t have time today, but I’ll be sure to whip up some of this further on in the week.
      It’s sooo nice to find recipes with ingredients I don’t have to worry about not being available in Holland!
