Tortilla de Patata con Quelpo Japonés (Spanish Omelette) Recipe Video

Today I am going to show you how to make Japanese-Style Spanish Omelette (Potato Tortilla). Potato Tortilla is one of the typical spanish dishes. In my recipe, I am not going to deep fry the potatoes in olive oil (because it is fattening) but steam them in a pan (or a pot) with a tablespoon of olive oil! This is a very healthy idea. I hope you like it!

1. Cut the potato in half lengthwise and then cut into thin slices.
2. Thinly slice the onion and mince the garlic.

3. In a 18cm (7inch) frying pan (or pot), heat the olive oil and saute the garlic until fragrant.
4.Add onion and potato, and saute until evenly coated with oil. Cover, turn the heat down to low, and slowly cook for about 10 min, stirring once until the potato slices are fork tender.
5. Stop the heat and let them cool until just warm or you can microwave them at 500w for 5 min.
6. Beat eggs in a bowl, add Shio-Kombu and the cooked vegetables and mix well.
7. In the same pan (add olive oil if necessary), pour the egg mixture into the pan and spread over the surface.
8.Cover and cook on low for about 10 minutes until you can flip the omelette without breaking it. Then cook the other side.

9. Serve it warm with some buttered toast.
