I´m spanish, and I think this recipe is quite good except for the first step, you shouldn´t, never, cook the potatoes before frying them. another advise:the oil must be very hot for the frying.

  2. Heat oil in 20cm frying pan. Add potato slices and onion and fry for 5 minutes until tender and golden.
  3. Whisk eggs and season well. Pour over potato and onion mixture.
  4. Cook tortilla over low heat for 10 minutes until eggs set.
  5. Loosen edges of tortilla with spatula and slide onto a plate and turn the tortilla over to cook the underside again for another 5-10 minutes. Or you can finish under a grill the top side to brown.
