Patatas bravas

Starter Serves 6 45 min
This very more-ish snack is good with a glass of red or a chilled Spanish beer. Enjoy it either as part of a tapas spread or as a side dish. This is often served with mayonnaise or aioli.


  • 900g potatoes, cut into 2cm pieces
  • 5 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp tomato purée
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper
  • salt and pepper


Prep time: 10 min
Cooking time: 35 min
  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 180°C/Gas 4.
  • Step 2

    Steam the potatoes over boiling water for 5 minutes until barely tender. Drain for a few moments and then add to a large bowl. Combine the remaining ingredients, pour over the potatoes and toss gently to coat. Spread the potatoes in a single layer in a roasting pan.
  • Step 3

    Bake in the oven, turning every so often for 25-30 minutes until they become a rich gold colour and slightly blackened at the edges. Tip into a warm bowl, spear the potatoes with toothpicks and serve immediately with a selection of dips.
