homemade mayo

till i came to algeria i never knew how to make mayo

then i was in my bil house and his wife was making it so i watched with interest and masha`allah could not believe how easy it was


here we have 2 tablespoons of dijon mustard

2 egg yolks

and salt

mix well and add oil slowly , about 1/2 litre

till you have this



then add some vinegar and juice of 1 big lemon or just add to taste




  1. Masha Allah it looks great! So how do you find it... As good as bought, nicer than or would you prefer to buy it?!

  2. oh i think it`s much nicer than the bought ones and with this i like to half it and make garlic mayo too

    and it`s cheaper too

  3. Insha'Allah I'll give it a go! How much does it make and does it taste eggy?

  4. it makes about one big jar ... now it can look very yellowy until you add the vinegar and lemon and i forgot to ask it you find it thick just add a little water it will thin it out for you

    and no it doesnt taste eggy at all

  5. Assalamo alaikum,

    I once saw an Algerian sister making this, and I couldn't even bear to try it! Soooo much vegetable oil, then raw eggs. I could almost see the salmonella jumping out at me, lol! Yours does look very nice though mashaAllah, hers was yellow, she didn't put in any lemon juice.

  6. the lemon juice and vinegar is important and does change the colour

    and i agree about the amount of oil but think about it at least if you make it yourself you can see whats in it

    but bought ones how can you be sure... really

    if when i saw my bil`s wife making it i too had the same thought but i dont use as much as she did and she only used lemon juice as i said i too use vinegar

    and water to thin it out

    which in tail reduces the amount of oil

    jazak`allah khair for your input so nice of you to take the time to read my blog

Guest post From Halal Home Cooking ....Pancakes with a twist

As-Salaamu Alaykum I'm Umm Hamza from  Halal Home Cooking  today I'm sharing a recipe for a breakfast staple with a twist. Pancakes are my children's favourite breakfast food. They will gladly eat cereal with milk, creamy porridge and jam/jelly doughnuts but unlike those aforementioned staples that only get half to three quarters eaten because A. they turn soggy B. get's cold and sticky or c. no jam left, pancakes will  always  be eaten, no excuses. Once you've honed your basic pancake recipe you are free to experiment with flavour combinations and that's exactly how these chai spiced chocolate and tahini pancakes came about ma sha Allah Source : I found this chai spiced latte powder whilst searching 'halal' during my on-line grocery shopping. I'm always hoping when hitting that search button new products will pop up and this time it d

Pocasi/ split green pea soup

Asalamu alikum Well it sure has been a long time since i posted so i thought let me share this Pocasi recipe with you while i remember This soup is made from split green peas first i wash the peas and then add them to my pot (i used a pressure cooker) i added onion ... garlic..... i diced up carrots ...courgettes...and potato into  really small bits and added to the pot i also added black pepper....salt ...cumin...and razel hanut.... fill with water and placed lid on  and allowed to cook about 30 to 40 mins in total ... then let the pressure out and open then  stir.... if you need more water add and allow to cook towards the end add some tomato puree and allow to thicken up a little .... when i make this i do not use oil and i should say that this type of soup will continue to thicken and even the next day you will need to add more water to thin out ... but masha`allah is a really nice soup

Pizza Roll

Asalamu Alikum For months my oven hasn't worked and all of a sudden it was working again so the first thing i made was pizza roll ... while doing this i was teaching my daughter my 13 year old how to do this as my 15 year old already knows how to this is basically the samr as the homemade pizza i make only the sauce is a little different ... all i do is use tomato puree and add spices of my choice and then i thin it out to make it easier to spread it is roll out like normal pizza here is my recipe for that you can add any topping and then just take the side and roll the dough till it's like a log ... then cut into rounds and place on tray ... i will add cheese on top as well as the cheese that is inside and then bake for about 15 to 20 mins
