Method

  1. Prepare ahead by heating the oil in a pan, add the onion and fry for about 5 minutes until softened. Add the garlic, tomatoes, tomato purée, paprika, chilli powder, sugar and salt and bring to the boil, stirring. Simmer for 10 minutes until pulpy. Set aside for up to 24 hours.
  2. To serve, preheat the oven to 200C/gas 6/fan oven 180C. Cut the potatoes into small cubes and pat dry with kitchen paper. Spread over a roasting tin and toss in the oil, then season. Roast for 40-50 minutes, until the potatoes are crisp and golden.
  3. Tip the potatoes into dishes and spoon over the reheated sauce. Sprinkle with the parsley. Serve with cocktail sticks.

I put more chili powder in than recommended and a bit more garlic, they tasted just like the ones I had in Barcelona. Really cheap and easy to make as well.

You shouldn´t use chilli powder, fresh birds eye´s are best.remember "fierce potatoes"

I made this to serve with cheese enchiladers, bean salad and margaritas for a vegetarian dinner party and it went down a storm.

However reheated the left overs a couple of days later and added small pieces of crispy bacon, which I think made it much tastier.

very tasty, have made several times now. I tend to add a chilli to give it that extra kick!

Made these with a variety of Spanish dishes eg Prawns Romesco, Pinchos Morunos. Albondigas. Brochetas, Tostas and Tortilla and meats. The 'fierce potatoes' met with the approval of my Spanish son in law who deemed them 'as good as at home'

Made these for a spanish lunch and they were delicious. We visit relatives in andalucia regularly and often order these when we have tapas. Im told it translates as brave potatoes - must be the chilli!! Very tasty and a good addition to any spanish menu

Made this for a Spanish evening and served with flaming Chorizo, meat Platter, Cheese and quince jelly and bread. I would make the potato chuncks bigger next time as mine were a bit small for Tapas. Great served with cold Spanish dry Sherry!
