[Dishes] Spanish Tortilla

This one is so easy and gives you a great result in the end. I love potato dishes, they're always easier to make and the most delicious ones. This Spanish Tortilla makes an excellent breakfast, it's quick and tasty.

All you need are these two ingredients.. 

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 pounds baking potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 onions, sliced into rings
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 roasted red pepper, drained and cut into strips
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh Italian parsley


  1. Heat 1/2 cup olive oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add half of the potato slices, and cook, stirring occasionally, until just tender, 15 to 20 minutes. When done, remove potatoes to a large bowl, leaving oil in the skillet. Cook the remaining potatoes in the oil until tender, then add to the bowl, leaving oil in the skillet. Gently toss potatoes with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in onion rings, and gently cook until soft and golden brown, about 15 minutes. Spoon onions onto a plate, and allow to cool while the potatoes finish cooking.
  3. Whisk eggs in a large bowl until smooth. Stir in cooled onions and roasted peppers. Gently fold in cooked potatoes.
  4. Heat the skillet with the reserved oil over low heat. Pour in the egg mixture, and gently cook until the sides have started to set and the bottom has turned golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Loosen the tortilla with a spatula if needed, then carefully slide onto a large plate. Turn the skillet upside down and place onto the uncooked side of the tortilla. Turn the skillet right-side-up, and remove the plate. Return the skillet to the stove, and continue cooking until the tortilla has set in the center, about 4 minutes.
  5. Slide the tortilla onto a serving plate and allow to cool to room temperature. Cut into six wedges and sprinkle with parsley to serve.

You would want to make sure that the potato cubes don't turn out as fries, just fry them till they're soft and tender. Not crunchy! 

[Dishes] Chicken Tikka Masala

Hello all, this has been such a long summer. I finished school and I'm still waiting for uni to start. I spent most of my time watching tv shows instead of reading. I also started learning how to cook so I won't starve when I live abroad :P In the next series of posts, I'll post my amateur attempts at cooking. I love looking for a new recipe everyday, then watch it on YouTube and try to come up with something edible and presentable.

Here's my recent dish, Chicken Tikka Masala. 

Now, this was a fun and easy thing to do. Simple steps to perfect it; seasoning the chicken breasts well then grilling them so that the chicken pieces are tender and finally, working on thickening the masala sauce. You could easily use the basic seasoning of salt and pepper and the other ingredients mentioned in the recipe but I think using a masala curry mix which comes in boxes will do the trick. Most important part, my parents totally loved it.
