Spanish Tortilla with a touch of Indian spices


Spanish Tortilla or Spanish omlette is something completely different to Mexican Tortillas.  Mexican tortillas are flatbread made using flour, whereas Spanish tortillas are omlette cooked with potatoes. This simple omlette is an ideal filling breakfast on a lazy sunday morning or you can also pack these for your picnic, since they are good even when served cold.



This dosen't require any fancy pans or exotic spices, but being an Indian we never forget to add turmeric in our food, especially when it comes to omlette or meat, also to spice it up more I have also added few green chillies. Oh! yes, we also add green chillies to our omlette along with turmeric, let's have a look into the recipe to check what else I have added...

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time:20 minutes
Serves 4

Ingredients:
Eggs- 5
Potatoes- 4 medium sized( cubed)
Green Chilly-1
Onion- 1 finely chopped
Turmeric powder- 1/4 tsp
Pepper powder- 1 tsp
Coriander leaves- 1 tbsp( finely chopped)
Oil- 1 tbsp
Salt as required

Method:
Peel and chop the potatoes into cubes.  Take a 8 inch non stick pan.  Add the oil, finely chopped onion and saute for 1 minute.  Then add the potatoes, keep the heat in medium and cook the potatoes without browning it.  
 Meanwhile break the eggs in bowl and whisk it lightly along with turmeric, salt and pepper.  Once the potatoes are cooked, add the eggs on top of the potatoes.  When the eggs leaves the sides of the pan, place a plate on top of the pan and gently flip it over , then slide the omlette to the pan again and cook it on the other side.  Sprinkle the coriander leaves on top.  If you want you can season it with more salt and pepper on top.
Slice the omlette into wedges or make them into small cubes and serve it along with tomato ketchup.
