  1. In blender or food processor fitted with steel blades, place carp-roe caviar and cold water.
  2. Blend briefly.

  4. Trickle in oil very slowly while blending.
  5. When mixture is thick and oil is used up, add onion, garlic and dill and blend until smooth.
  6. Adjust seasoning, seeing if it needs some salt and add pepper to taste.
