Patatas Bravas
From: Hillcrest

Here is my recipe for 'Patatas Bravas' (Brave Potatoes!?) I have adapted it to ingredients that I keep to hand, but I think this recipe is a lot better than in a lot of restaurants that I have visited.
If you come up with a better version please could I have it?

  • Potatoes 2 large, peeled, cut into bitesize pieces, washed and dried
  • Creamed tomatoes or Passata 500ml
  • Small onion, slicecd
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 1-2 dessert spoons of Paprika (I use 2)
  • Chilli sauce or powder to taste (I use 1-2tsp of sauce, but I like it HOT)
  • Olive Oil
Deep Fry potatoes until crisp (for health you could bake them I suppose)
Saute onion and garlic in olive oil
Add paprika and fry 2 mins.
Add tomato
Add chilli to taste
Add Potatoes
Season well, cook for 5 mins.
Serve with crusty bread and perhaps a couple of other Tapas which I will supply if this one goes down well.
If it doesn't I think I might be too embarrassed to do this again!!!
