    1. Fill a pan with plenty of water and a little salt. Wash the potatoes but don’t peel them. Cook over a high heat.
    2. When the potatoes are soft, take them off the heat and leave them to cool to room temperature. Then peel and cut into uniformly-sized chunks.
    3. Fry the potatoes in a pan with hot oil for 3 minutes until they brown lightly.
    4. To make the salsa brava, mix together in a saucepan the tomato sauce, the chilli pepper, a little Tabasco, olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper. Bring to the boil and then set aside.
    5. Take the potatoes out of the pan, drain them well and serve accompanied by the salsa brava.

    Tasty and very simple to prepare, but I made a few tweaks... I didn't have fried tomato sauce (or regular tomato sauce for that matter) so I made my own with passata, salt, sugar and sunflower oil. I also added some paprika because I simply can't imagine patatas bravas without it! I used chilli oil rather than chilli pepper because I didn't have any available. I fried the potatoes in a mixture of sunflower and olive oil (olive oil on its own tends to burn very easily when I use it!). Next time I would add a little garlic, but other than that, this was a nice side dish which everyone enjoyed :-)  -  22 Aug 2012
