Spanish omelette, also known as Spanish tortilla, is a Spanish traditional dish, definitely one of the signature dishes in Spanish cuisine.
It is an omelette made with eggs and potatoes, optionally including onion.
- 6 large eggs
- 1 large red onion
- 3 med potatoes sliced or cubed
- 2 tbsp Vegetable oil
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper or some chili flakes/cayenne pepper
- Dhania fresh -chopped (optional)
- 1 medium red or green pepper (optional)
Wash, peel and slice the potatoes, rinse them again and allow them to drain in a colander while you prepare other ingredients.
Heat vegetable oil in a pan and add the sliced potatoes and chopped onions. Stir fry and season well with salt and pepper.
Cover and allow those to cook slowly (on low heat) for 15 minutes until the potatoes are nice and soft.
Meanwhile, whisk the 6 eggs in a large bowl. Whisk them well and season a little more with salt and pepper.
Add the whisked eggs to the potato and onion. Mix a little so the egg mixes with the potato and spreads evenly around the pan. Reduce the heat and let it cook uncovered for 7 minutes.
Cook both sides and when the omelette is ready, take it out onto a serving plate and cut into slices, pizza-like slices.
Garnish with Dhania and serve with any salad, crusty bread or cold beverage.
