Egg Substitutes

What can I use to substitute for eggs in a recipe? - is a question I've been haunted by, many a time. Being a lacto-vegetarian, we don't use eggs. And it is a problem when I serach for recipes like mousse, ice cream etc. There are numerous recipes that don't call for eggs, but curiosity keeps me on my toes to experiment substitutes for eggs in a recipe. Although a recipe can be Veganized by using suitable substitutes, there's really no sure way to tell which will work the best for a recipe. To know that, you must understand the purpose behind adding eggs (binding, keeping it moist, leavening etc) And so, depending upon what you're making, you need different substitutes.

I've compiled a list of whole egg substitutes here. (Not yolk or white) You need to decide which will be your best bet, while substituting for in a recipe. If you know what the eggs are added in a recipe for, half your job is done. :) Don't worry, it isn't as complicated as it sounds. I have (at least I hope I have) made it as simple as possible. This is an inclusive (& not exhaustive) list. So, if I have missed out anything/you have any other substitutes, do let me know. I shall include it here.
