This tortilla has been in my life for as long as I can remember. It was with me at breakfast times when I couldn’t look at another bowl of cereal, with us at family barbecues and picnics, with me through breakups, and saved me from eating plain eggs AGAIN when I couldn’t stomach any more plain, scrambled eggs.

Normally, a typical tortilla is made first by deep frying the potatoes in 1 – 2 cups of oil, depending on how many potatoes you are using. My mother, however, has managed to cut this amount down to 1/2 a cup, which gives exactly the same crisp and golden results, with half the fat! So long as you use a good quality nonstick pan to prevent sticking, 1/2 cup is the perfect amount of oil. Thanks mama!

Serve with a salad, or use as an entree or appetiser. Great for snacks. Traditionally served as tapas in little squares.
