A traditional Tortilla is made up of simple ingredients. You need five ingredients for Tortilla. These ingredients are eggs, potatoes, onion, salt, and olive oil. Onions are optional. Olive oil gives it the signature flavour it is known for.
Step 1: Start with the preparation of the ingredients. First, cut thin slices of potatoes and onions, preferably Julienne style. Then again, cut them in half.
Step 2: Medium heat the oil in a nonstick pan. Add an appropriate amount of oil so that it can fully cover the potatoes. Add potatoes and medium fry them for 5 minutes. Put onions in it and sauté over medium heat until they start to caramelize. When potatoes start to break, that’s your cue. That means it’s done.
Step 3: Take a bowl and beat four eggs in it. Add salt according to taste. Add the fried potatoes and onion to it. Mix everything well and leave it for some time.
Step 4: Heat some olive oil in the pan. Pour the whole mixture from step 3 into it. Use enough oil so that the omelette won’t stick to the pan. Cook on high flame till the edges firm up, then reduce the heat to low and cook it for about 5 minutes. Now take a spatula and carefully slide on onto a plate.
Serve it as you like.
