Pro tips & tricks by Anishya

  1. Use apple cider vinegar only for that original mayonnaise  recipe. Apple cider vinegar with mother is the best healthy option.
  2. Use a pinch of mustard powder only, else the taste won’t be good.
  3. Sweetness from honey and spiciness from the chili flakes and pepper powder make it a perfect healthy mayonnaise.
  4. Soak cashew nuts for maximum 8 hours (not infridge), else the cashew nuts become spoilt.

Variations you can try

  1. You can use any other flavorless healthy oils instead of olive oil.
  2. For instant cashew mayo you can soak the cashews in hot water for 10 minutes. But the 6-8 hours soaking in normal water method is the best method.

Storage tips

  1. You can store the dip in fridge in 1-2 days only, better serve immediately.
