Spanish omlette (or) Spanish tortilla, is not to be confused with Mexican tortilla. It is a typical Spanish dish consisting of a thick egg omelette made with potatoes and fried in olive oil. Mexican tortillas is rather a type of thin flat bread.
     Eggs are one of those rare dishes that can be eaten at any meal, whenever you want something fuss-free. What I love is that they are so instant and light.

Olive oil- 3teaspoons
White onion-1
Potatoes, chopped-2
Chicken sausages, sliced-3 (optional)
Dried chilli flakes- ½ teaspoon
Chilli powder-a large pinch
Pepper & salt- to season

  • Heat oil in a pan and in low heat cook the onions for about 10 mts or on medium flame 5minutes. Then add the garlic and cook for 2mts. Add potatoes and cook till the potatoes are cooked through.
  • Cook the sausages in a frying pan until golden.
  • Beat the eggs in a large bowl until smooth, fold the potato onion mixture, sausages, chilli flakes, chilli powder and season with pepper and salt.
  • Heat the pan, add a drizzle of oil, once hot, carefully pour the mixture and spread evenly.
  • Reduce the heat and cover with foil. Cook until set. Allow to cool and turn the pan upside down then cut into wedges and serve.
  • Note: Transfer tortillas to preheated oven if you make big tortillas using more than 5 eggs. This allows cooking inside of the tortilla.
