Recipe Spanish tortilla

Preparing a Spanish tortillaWe often cook for breakfast an omelette with the potato left over from yesterday's dinner, and does not suspect that it is preparing something very similar to the national Spanish dish - a tortilla. The difference is that we do it hastily to eat, without choking, the remnants of half-eaten food, and for the Spaniards the tortilla is an opportunity to enjoy life. Very often they serve it as a traditional snack for an aperitif - tapas. In Spain, a lot of tapas bars, where this dish is served, can also be bought in almost any supermarket. But, of course, home tortilla is much tastier, and it is prepared simply. In Spain, it is not customary to boil potatoes in large quantities, as in Russia and near abroad, so the Spaniards perceive their national omelet with potatoes not as a way of eating, but as a perfectly worthy dish, which in a company with a hamon (dried pork ham) and pan -the tomato is a gorgeous dinner. An obligatory filler for tortilla is potatoes, and Spaniards seldom add anything else in it, except perhaps onions. But we are not used to light solutions, so our omelette will be a little more complicated, but it's tastier and brighter.
