Patatas Bravas

An essential part of any tapas meal, but also lovely served as an accompaniment to fish or meat. In our house, I separate the tomato sauce once most of the ingredients have been combined and add lots of dried chilli flakes to one pot before leaving both sauces (one hot, one not) to simmer down to a lovely thick consistency. I prefer to cook the sauce in advance and gently heat through just before the potatoes are done.
