Tortilla De Patatas | Spanish Omelette

Tortilla De Patatas
Tortilla De Patatas is a Spanish potato omelette, a speciality of Spain, which is filling & tempting. This is a picnic dish in Spain, which is served in to bite size cubes & served with cock tail sticks, but you can also make this dish for breakfast & as brunch for lazy weekends.
Potatoes & onions are the vegetables I used as it was authentic. You can add your choice of finely chopped vegetables in additions to potatoes & onions. 
We Indians love our food to be little spicy & when it comes to me I love food much spicier than the normal limits. Tortilla De Patata is very mild in taste, so to satisfy my taste buds I added a pinch of chili powder along with black pepper to make it spicy.
