Tortilla de Patatas / Spanish Omelette

During my travel to Spain I fell in love with Tortilla de Patatas. Loved variations of it too in Spain specially Madrid and Barcelona. For my Sunday brekky I wanted a Kingsize one and Tortilla de Patatas is the best choice. I didn’t change the method to cook at all and cooked exactly the way I had seen my Spanish friend cook at her home in Madrid and when she visited me in 2015 in India.
