Mayonnaise with wasabi

Ever made mayo in a roomy bowl with just a wire whisk? Boy, was I happy when we could finally afford to buy a food processor. No more watching beaten eggs fly out of the bowl or after minutes of whisking, ending up with curdled goo and stiff arms. Of course, it became even simpler with the advent of stick blenders. A whirrr, blupp and presto! - mayo is ready!! (and I don't really care what old school chefs think about this.)

A lot of stuff can be added into mayo, mine had wasabi paste. The stuff in tubes is potent so proceed with caution. Here's how it goes:

Mayonnaise with wasabi

1 whole egg
275 ml oil
1/2 teaspoon mustard paste
Juice of 1 lime
1 teaspoon sugar
Salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon wasabi paste (or as needed)

Break the egg and gently slide it into the jar of the blender.
Add in all the other ingredients.

Slide whole egg into the jar, add in other ingredients

Position the dome of the blender just over the yolk.
Switch on.

Switch on and lift up the stick

Wait for the whirr and blupp, lift the stick a bit as the contents start to thicken. That's it - your mayo's ready.
Check seasoning.

Remove half the mayo, add wasabi paste into the remainder and blend again.

Pungent and creamy wasabi mayo
