With a pestle and mortar, pound the garlic, egg yolk and chile to a smooth paste, season, add the oil in a slow drizzle while whipping vigourously, stop when it resembles the (awful) ready- made mayonnaise you can find in the shops ;) Of course, using a blender or food processor makes it easier.

Be sure to make enough, if you'r having a BBQ - party, as this one "ain't bad"! Makes 1 cup.

PS. Unless you have a restaurant-sized blender/mixer, make it in batches.
