Tortilla | How to make Spanish Omelette
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
2 big potatoes, sliced
1 onion chopped
1 cup of Besan / Gram flour
Salt and pepper to season
How to make the Tortilla
Heat a nonstick pan and shallow fry the onions and potatoes for around five minutes, or until the potatoes begin to soften, remove from the oil and keep it aside.
Take the besan in a bowl, slowly add cold water while mixing until you get a consistency similar to pancake batter. Now add the potatoes and onions, season with salt and pepper and mix well.
Heat the nonstick pan again with olive oil, pour the mixture and cook over a medium heat or until the edges and top begin to thicken.
Traditionally, people seem to slide a plate and tilt. I simply removed it with a spatula as I was using a nonstick pan.
Cook on the other side till done.
Cook for another few minutes, let cool and serve with tomato sauce.
