  • Watch the video in the post for easy visual instructions.
    Add all ingredients to a small-medium bowl and stir with a whisk until combined. Start with 1 tbsp of water and add more if you want a runnier sauce.
  • Taste it and adjust seasonings as needed. I also like to add a little hot sauce for some heat.
  • Cover the bowl and chill for a few hours (or overnight) which will help the flavors to mend.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 6 days.


Video Of The Recipe

  • I used homemade vegan sour cream, but feel free to use vegan mayonnaise instead.
  • Sweetener: Use Erythritol or any other keto sweetener for a low-carb sauce.
  • A pinch of Kala Namak (black salt) will add an "eggy flavor". You can skip it if using store-bought vegan mayo.
  • You can add 1 tbsp of melted vegan butter for a more authentic flavor, however, I prefer to keep it healthier.
  • Optional Add-Ins: Add a little mirin for extra tang and depth of flavor. White miso can be also added for more ‘umami’ and flavor balance.
