Anyway, I recently came back from Scotland where Ailie makes the best tortilla this side of the Alhambra. This time I stole her secret, so no telling OK?
Chop 2 onions
cook slowly 5 medium potatoes diced in olive oil for about 25 minutes
whisk 6 eggs and 2 cloves of garlic pressed.
Now pay attention because here comes the trick:
Return the content of the frying pan into the egg mixture and beat
Pour back into the pan, and here Ailie let slipped that the non-stick quality of the pan is all important. Go tuck tuck around the corner with your spatula as demonstrated. until the tortilla looks set.
do that nifty trick where you put a plate on the top of the tortilla so that it covers it and turn the lot round to transfer the tortilla into the plate, making sure that you are holding your plate with one hand.
transfer the content of the plate back in the pan for a few minutes
et voila, best tortilla known on earth.
