That Fancy Spanish Omelette

· Recipes

I was browsing for Tortilla De Patata in Singapore's restaurant scene and found that it costs $42 to buy one! And here is how to make it!

Ingredients (for a 24cm Nonstick Frying Pan)

  • 6 Large Eggs
  • 3 Large Potatoes (Preferably Waxy, but any type is fine) 
  • 1 White Onion (Preferably, but Yellow Onion is fine too) 
  • 2 Garlic Clove
  • Enough Extra Virgin Olive Oil 
  • Beef Garum (Optional, only if you make it. Not available in Stores) 
  • Sweet Cai Poh (Optional, Preserved Radishes)
  • Lao Gan Ma (Optional) 


  • Gather your equipment and ingredients. 
  • Low heat, preheat your olive oil in the pan. 
  • Chop the potatoes and onions. Smash garlic
  • Drop garlic into oil to test the oil temperature, and then drop the onions and potatoes in
  • Poach in olive oil, low heat for 20 to 25 mins. 
  • Strain the potatoes and onion mixture and drop into a big bowl with the eggs. You may keep the used olive oil for another use or normal cooking. 
  • Season the eggs mixture with salt, and pepper for traditional version. Add Caipoh and Beef Garum for our Global Classic version. 
  • Mix the egg with the potato mixture and rest for 15 mins. The mixture should become syrupy from the heat of the potatoes
  • Cook on the frying pan. Medium high heat 1 min and 2 to 3 mins low heat. Exercise judgment on when to flip. You want to cook through about 40 to 50% here. 
  • Flip and continue for 1 min medium high heat and 2 mins low. 
  • Flip and serve. 
  • Add Lao Gan Ma chilli crisp for Global classic version. 
  • Enjoy!
