  • 2 kg
  • 200 g
    onions chopped
  • 120 g

  1. Cook the potatoes in plenty of salted water until just soft, about 15 minutes. Let cool.

  2. Once cool, cut the cooked potatoes into slices, about 0,5 cm thick.

  3. Using a frying pan, fry the potato slices in the olive oil until they start to get a bit of colour.

They fit well with a tangy brown gravy and roasted vegetables.
