Patatas bravas (potatoes in spicy tomato sauce)
Peel the potatoes and cut them into medium-size chunks. Heat the Spanish olive oil gently in a frying pan and add the potatoes. Fry the potatoes gently for about 20 minutes, making sure that they are cooked through. Then turn up the heat and cook the potatoes for 3 o 4 minutes more to give them a nice golden colour. Put them on a plate with some kitchen paper to drain them well, transfer them to a serving dish and pour the sauce over them. To make the sauce, heat a little olive oil in a pan and add the chopped onion, tomatoes and garlic along with the pimentón. Allow the ingredients to soften for a few minutes and them sprinkle in the flour and stir well. Cook the mixture for a short time before adding the water. Then, whizz the sauce in a blender until smooth. You can serve it either hot or at room temperature.
