Algerian Sauce the sauce you will use for anything

I always say that mayonnaise is the queen of sauces. The main ingredient to make this sauce is mayonnaise, it also has red onion, cilantro, harissa and spices. This makes the Algerian Sauce or Sauce Algérienne a level above of mayonnaise.

The good thing about this sauce is that it is prepared within just a few minutes. And best of all, when making it at home, you can adjust the spiciness of the sauce. If you love spicy you can add more harissa.

It's a sauce with chunks, I personally love it. But if you are not a big fan of chunky sauce, you can put the sauce through the blender and you will have a delicious Sauce Algérienne without any chunks.

What ingredients does Algerian Sauce have?

You are probably wondering what the Sauce Algérienne contains, the Algerian Sauce has few ingredients which I detail below.

  • Mayonnaise: mayonnaise is the star ingredient to make Algerian Sauce, you need 250 grams. You can make it at home (highly recommended) or you can use jarred mayonnaise. I leave you a short video here so you can see how easy it is to make your own mayonnaise, you will see that you will never buy it at the supermarket again
  • Onion: use half a red onion chopped very finely
  • Garlic: you need a clove of pressed garlic
  • Coriander: you need 5 sprigs of fresh cilantro chopped

First of all, I leave you a link to a short video of how the Algerian Sauce is made (although it is nothing more than mixing some ingredients): here to watch the video.

If you are going to make your own mayonnaise to make Sauce Algérienne, start with that. If not, skip the step of making homemade mayonnaise.

HOMEMADE MAYONNAISE: In the glass of the hand mixer, add the egg, salt to taste (about two pinches of salt), the lemon juice (1/4 teaspoon) and 150 ml of sunflower oil on top. Place the mixer resting on the bottom of the mixer glass and beat without moving it for a few seconds, then raise and lower the mixer until it reaches the consistency of mayonnaise. Once it has reached consistency, add the remaining oil little by little (100 ml), and raise and lower the mixer. Now you have delicious homemade mayonnaise, enjoy! here to watch the video (1 minute).

Then add all the ingredients to the mayonnaise except the lemon juice. Mix well and finally add the lemon juice.

You can keep the sauce for about 3 days in the fridge.

Enjoy, Bismillah!
