6‒7 medium sized potatoes
1 medium onion
5‒6 eggs
1‒2 cups of olive oil
salt

Tortilla de Patatas is easy to prepare. You need potatoes, onion, eggs, olive oil and salt.

Cook the potatoes nearly cooked and let them cool a bit. Peel and grate them roughly. Slice and cut the onion. Put them together to a large bowl and season with salt. Beat the eggs, mix with fork and combine with potatoes-onion mixture. Heat oil in a pan with high sides. Let the oil warm a little and then spread the potatoes mixture evenly in the pan. Olive oil should nearly cover the tortilla. Hold the temperature steady and let the tortilla fry and get medium brown color within 15‒20 minutes. Flip the tortilla carefully. Set a large plate upside down over a pan and invert tortilla onto a plate. Set tortilla back into pan and let cook for more 4‒5 minutes.
