  • 6 Eggs
  • 1½ tsp Salt
  • 1 cup Olive Oil
  • 2 large Onions (finely chopped)
  • ½ tsp Black Pepper (freshly ground)
  • 900 gms Russet Potatoes (peeled & sliced)
How to make Tortilla de Patatas:
  • Heat oil in a pan over medium flame. Add potatoes to it.
  • Stir occasionally until they turn golden and crisp.
  • Take out the potatoes with a slotted spoon.
  • Add salt and pepper to the potatoes, and toss them for a while.
  • Add onions in the remaining oil and sauté till they turn golden.
  • In the meanwhile, beat the eggs thoroughly in a large bowl. Add the potatoes, onions, remaining salt and pepper to it. Leave it for 5-10 minutes.
  • Take a smaller pan and put it over medium flame.
  • Smear the pan with a little bit of oil. Pour half of the potato/onion/eggs mix in the pan. Swish the pan so that the mixture gets evenly spread.
  • Allow the mixture to cook for a few minutes until the crispy thin egg edge starts to pull away from the pan.
  • Now, take a spoon and run it around the outside edges to make sure the egg layer has not stuck to the pan.
  • Slide in the spoon; lift the omelette to turn its upside down. By doing this, the uncooked side will get cooked.
  • Cook for another minute or so, and then slide the omelette onto a plate.
  • Tortilla de Patata is ready to eat. Serve with bread and sauce.
