SECRET 1.- How to get a tasty Spanish Omelette (Tortilla De Patata)

Chop a clove of garlic and/or a slice of onion and add them to the potatoes while they are being fried. The tortilla de patata will be exceptionally tasty and nobody will notice those secret ingredients. Even if you do not like them, you will appreciate this delicious omelette. You can help with a “Pica ajos” or garlic chopper to get the fine texture of the garlic and onion.


Add a small teaspoon of yeast to the eggs when you are stirring them. You will get a spongy tortilla de patata that will surprise your guests. Everyone will want to know this gourmet secret. You can use “Royal baking powder“, which is very easy to manage.


When you remove the fried foods from the pan, place them on a plate which you have previously covered with paper napkins or kitchen roll sheets. The excess of oil will be absorbed by the porous paper and the fried food will look less fatty. An ecological thicker absorbent paper, such as Renova Green Paper Kitchen Towel, is recommended. Your croquettes, squid rings, donuts, or empanadillas will look better and healthier.

“The excess of oil will be absorbed by the porous paper and the fried will look less fatty.”


To prevent the tortilla de patata from sticking in the frying pan, it is necessary to preheat the frying pan beforehand. Then add the oil, and then, only when it is too hot! you can place the omelet. This can be also done to prevent the fried eggs from being stuck in the frying pan. There are also especially non-stick pans that can be very useful, like the T-fal Nonstick Fry Pan.

SECRET 5.- Bye bye to the garlic smell

After having prepared a delightful Spanish dish, it would be a disappointment if the chef’s hands smell like garlic. Sometimes it seems impossible to get rid of such an annoying culinary aroma. The solution is to wash your hands with tap water and touching a metal utensil containing iron steel. The Tescoma Spatula is a very useful tool for cooking tortillas, eggs, and other dishes. Besides, as it is stainless steel, it will relieve the unpleasant smell of garlic from us.

    Hello! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form?

    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having trouble finding one?
    Thanks a lot!
