Important potatoes

Hello!

This time I come again with a vegetarian recipe, but a really good one for winter cold days. It’s a typical spanish recipe original from Palencia, and very economic.

Ingredients (for 1 person):

  • 2 potatoes
  • 1 onion
  • Saffron
  •  3 garlic cloves
  • A bunch of parsley
  • 2 bay leaves
  • Paprika
  • 1 egg
  • Flour
  • White wine
  • About ½ litre of oil to fry

Let’s start peeling the potatoes and then slicing them, having slices about half centimetre thick. Pass each potato slices first through flour and then through a whisked egg.

Add oil in a pan or pot and wait for it to be hot, fry the potatoes in several batches for about 3 minutes. Then reserve them over paper towels in order to remove oil excess.

Chop an onion and put a bit of olive oil in a pot, then add the onion a bit of salt and 2 bay leaves. Stir from time to time and cook about 6-7 minutes. While cooking the onion put in a mortar 3 garlic cloves, a bit of saffron, a bit of salt and a bunch of parsly grinding them until well mixed.

Add a bit of white wine in the pot, the content of the mortar, one teaspoon of paprika and the already fried potatoes. Add enough water to cover the potatoes passing above like 2 fingers  and cook for 20 minutes. Instead of stiring it, just shake the pot in order to avoid break the potatoes.
