About This Class

Are you tired about the same dinner every week? Don't have time to go to supermarket? Want to try a typical meal from Spain? Want to surprice your family and friends with something new? Have to take something for lunch at work? Don't have money to buy expensive ingredients?

Have you ever heard about Tortilla de Patata? Because maybe this is your answer.

It is very Simple to make if you know the tricks and advises, made only with eggs and potatoes, and this is what I going to explain in this 12 minutes class. With the help an experience from my mother in law, we will cover all steps, from peeling the potatoes until it is ready to eat in the plate.

The great part about this meal is:

  • everybody likes it.
  • the ingredients are at most houses (eggs&potatoes), no need to go to the supermarket.
  • you can customize it according to your taste.
  • you don't need to measure anything.
  • great for a dinner family or to share in a reunion.

My name is Daniela Alonso, but my friends call me Colo because of my hair color.

My studies of Industrial Design allow me to work in Argentina, Italy and Spain in technical design. But in my spare time I develop my artistic flair, creating my own candles, restouring furniture with decoupage, making origami, knitying, sewing, backing muffins etc...most of these activities I make them with my two kids (10 and 7 years old). They just love to make craft-work as much us me.

Everything I make has my personal touch and a piece of my essence. Thats the way I take care of my family and people around, why not to share it with the rest of the world?

I have actually two classes published about QUILLING and one about DECOUPAGE, TORTILLA DE PATATA and wha... See full profile

1. Introduction: Hello. My name is Carla and this is my mother in law, Billy. Together, we're going to explain step estates how to make a 30 a data. And what is a tortilla? Panetta is a typical Spanish omelet. Not the French are minutes not Mexican porphyria that tasted under delicious Spanish cominat on Who makes the Ben Tortilla. The truth is that grandmothers are the best cooks in this area. And this is why I call Billy to help me with this class. What's great about tortilla? It's flavors. It is simple and delicious. And this is why everybody likes tortilla. It is very easy to cook, and it works great for a leaner land sandwich. A birthday party, etcetera only takes three basic ingredients and you can customize is the way you like best . I will tell you in this class all the secrets and tips, and you will be able to make the best tortilla in the world. 2. Project Description: Hello for the project assignment. I had thought about doing something a little experimental. Instead of making everybody the same tortilla. I thought it would be very fun if everybody adds to the basic recipe, a personal patch in skill shirt. We are all from different countries and cultures, and it's going to be so great to see how far I'm flexible. 30 you could be. So I think we didn't like. And you think it could work best on shared the experiment with your classmates? Which ingredient you add it. Do you like it? And a picture? 3. Ingredients & Extras: hello. In this video, I am going to talk about the basic ingredients for 30 years, potato and then two options that we added, because I'm sharing with you our family recipe. So we need to potatoes, five eggs, olive oil and a pinch of salt and then optional Hal phony in on half green paper. Then you're going to need a frying pan. I am using a 24 centimeters diameter or 9.5 inches. So the important thing about the frame plan is that has to be like a new one with no damage at all. Like the one that I'm showing you in the video. Mine is not new one, but it has a perfect is her face. And this is what we need if we don't want to get the 30 the potato stock when we turn it over 4. Peel + cut the ingredients: Hello. In this video, I am how to cut all the ingredients. We're going to start with the two optionals, the audience. You have to be made and then cut it like I'm sure we in the video a trick about not to cry with when you cut. The only in is to put the onion at the day before in the fridge. Then we're going to continue with the half pepper. We have to wash it, dry it on. A trick about how to take most of the cities is to push this talk inside and then outside a some showing the video and then keep taking. This is that remains inside. Then also, you have to cut the paper that come showing the video in the squares. As for the end, we have to peel the potatoes. Remember, we need to potatoes. Then you have to wash it. And if you see that potatoes had some brown places, take it with a knife, like showing in the baby. When you feel that you have to produce just perfect, we have to cotton. So you have to make the first cut to stand up to and then carted Penis squares Not to be No . Two. Small like I'm showing in the media. Remember, we need to potatoes and this is all next video. We're going to start cooking the ingredients. 5. Cook Vegetables: Hello. In this video, we're going to cook all ingredients. We have to put oil in the frame plan plenty off it. And this is as much oil as we're going to use in the complete recipe. Then we have to leave the oil in a medium temperature for a while until it gets alarm To know that the oil is ready, we have to put a piece off a vegetable and see if he starts a bubbling on making a noise. That means Israeli. So we can add the ingredients in the case on going to put onions and peppers first. Because it takes longer to cook, don't forget to move them and also to put a pinch of salt. I will leave it for about 15 minutes in a medium temperature that if you like to have your own union papers a little burn, you have to increase the temperature maybe in a night. So we have to wait 15 minutes on every so often we have to move the After these 15 minutes , we add the potatoes. You have to remember to add a pinch of cells. We have to move them, and if we want, we can go over the peaks. In this case, I left potatoes for 30 minutes in a medium temperature on every so often I'm off the mix to know that a potato is ready. We have to get one piece with two fingers on, try to smashes. And if it is easy, like like I'm shown in the video, that means the potatoes already. 6. Beat the eggs + add the mix cooked: Hello. In this video, we're going to beat eggs, complete joke on white, and we're going to use a big bowl because later we're going to add all the cook ingredients . I'm using five eggs for two potatoes. But if you're using more potatoes or a big of a frying pan at more X, then a pinch of salt on start beating. Not that much. When you see that you haven't like I'm showing the video, you have to add, did ingredients cooked? Be careful to added and leave the rest of oil in the frame pan. Because this rest of oil is going to be used to cook. The 30 year now makes a little bit ingredients, and we are ready for the next text. 7. How to cook the complete mix and turn over: Hello. In this video, I am going to show you how to cook the complete 30 years. We have all the ingredients makes in the role with on. We have to throw it in the frame pan, where we have the old that we separated from the vegetables before in a medium temperature . We're going to mix just for a little while the ingredients and then we don't have to make anymore. We're going to see that the exit started being cooked, so it's time to stop mixing. We live in my days for about five minutes, and then we started separating the ages from the frying pan. Although you think you are breaking it, it is not thesis way. We're going to have perfect borders very, very rounds like a doughnut. An older is going to help us when we have to turn it over. We have all the borders perfect. Separated on the is not already cook in the top. It's time to make the turn over. We're going to need a flat played and not to be scared. We can 123 unturned, and then with this boon, we're going to her bus to put it again in the frying pan. Remember to make the edges around beginning now we have two options to leave it like he's in a very low temperature, like a number two for about 20 minutes. Or you can control it on turnover as much as you need until you think it's ready. And when it's ready, we're going to get it in the plate. The same thing. When we did the turnover, every time I used the plate, I like to have it cleans and that's old. 8. Final Thoughts: thank you very much for your time and your attention. Well, my tortilla Lee, but that is ready. So we'll cut a piece of bread on sometime. And this is going to be my dinner for today. I want to give you one more trick. The dart ilya. Better that can be heated in the microwave and it tastes almost as well as freshly made. You have to take it from the fridge and put it about three minutes on that salt. So I encourage you to make better theory, Petya, and customize it according to your taste onto your culture on Sherry, please, with the rest of classmate so we can get new ideas for new dinners. Bye bye.
