Spanish Omelette(Tortilla De Patatas)

Author: Siddhi Shirsat // Category: , ,
Spanish omelette or tortilla de patatas is a typical Spanish dish consisting of an egg omelette with fried potatoes. Frequently it also includes onion , spring onion depending on region or taste.I like this dish from before and i modify it by adding and changing its ingredients.This is my most favourite version in which i add mushroom, bellpeppers etc. Its a very simple recipe yet tasty:-))


4 eggs
1 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped green bellpeppers
3/4 cup chopped mushrooms
1/2 cup finely diced potatoes
3-4 table spoon milk(optional)
1 tea spoon pepper powder
1/2 tea spoon termeric
olive oil


Heat a pan and add little oil.Add chopped onions and saute them till soft.Now add the diced potatoes and saute them for 2 mins.Now close the lid and let them get cooked for 2-3 mins.Saute them till they turn light brown.

Now add chopped capsicum and saute for 2-3 mins.Now finally add sliced mushrooms and cook for 1 min.Add little salt and turmeric and saute more for 2-3 mins.By now mushrooms must have also got cooked well.

Beat the eggs well in a bowl and add milk.Milk is added as it makes the omelette more fluffy.Add salt and pepper powder according to your taste and mix it well.Now add the sauted veges in it and mix it.

Heat a non-stick pan and add olive oil.Add all the egg mixture and spread it evenly on it.Normaly for 4 eggs 8" pan is well suited as this omelette needs to be thick.But i had 12" so mine is a bit thin.Close its lid and let it get cooked on low flame.

After 5-6 mins it will get cooked.Base of it will get brown, no need to turn it and cook.Remove it from flame.

Slice it and serve with bread toast or plain.

NOTE: You can even add whole spring onion in it.

Preparation Time: 10 mins
