Patatas Bravas: Sautéing With Sudha [22]

I'm obsessed with tapas. Like... the idea is just incredible. Don't settle for just one large meal - order an unnecessary amount of food in little portions so you can try MANY foods at once. Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. Eating in Spain was one of the highlights of my trip when I went (and when we were allowed to travel </3) - there were so many different foods to try and I didn't have to miss out on any of it because they came in little cute, baby, mini portions as opposed to living in America where one portion could technically last you for 3 whole meals. It's not just the portion sizes, it's what I was actually eating. There are so many different ways to make one dish and thats what I love. Like... if I want potatoes, theres a million different ways I can eat it. I fell in love with patatas bravas the first time I tried it - and then I tried, like, 5 other versions and those were just as good. I knew I had to learn how to make them at home only to find out they're EXTREMELY easy to make. Even easier if you have an air fryer!! Here's how to make *one* version of patatas bravas. Also, don't laugh at how poorly I drizzled on my white garlic aioli... I really regret not trying harder LOL.

Patatas Bravas

Prep/Cook Time: 20-25 Minutes

Serving Size: 2

What You'll Need: Potatoes:

•3-4 small/medium russet potatoes

•seasonings (1 tsp each): garlic powder, paprika, dried parsley, oregano

•salt + pepper for taste

What You'll Need: Garlic Aioli:

•1/2 cup mayo

•1-2 tbsp lemon juice

•2 tbsp minced or fresh garlic

•salt + pepper for taste

What You'll Need: Tomato Brava Sauce:

•2 tbsp olive oil

•1/2 cup tomato paste

•1/4 thinnly sliced red onion

•2 tbsp minced or fresh garlic

•1 tsp paprika

•1 tsp dried parsley

•pinch of sugar

•salt + pepper for taste

How To:

➊ Dice up your potatoes into 1-1.5 inch cubes. Place your diced cubes in a bowl with olive oil and your seasonings. Mix together and put into the air fryer. See notes below for instructions on how to cook potatoes.

➋ While your potatoes are cooking, make your garlic aioli and bravas sauce. Stir your sauces vigorously when making them so all the ingredients combine into their own sauce.

➌ To assemble - once potatoes are fully cooked, plate them and top with bravas sauce and drizzle with garlic aioli.


•If you're using an oven for this recipe, preheat to 325 degrees and bake your potatoes for about 15-20 minutes, checking occasionally and flipping them about half way into your time. Bake until they are as crispy as desired.

•If you're using an air fryer (like this recipe), you'll preheat to 325 degrees but will check on your potatoes more frequently within the 15 minutes. Be sure to mix them around and flip them.

•If you're frying your potatoes on a skillet, make sure you preheat the oil and cover the potatoes once they're cooking in the pan. Check on the potatoes every 5-7 minutes, stirring and turning them in the oil until they're cooked to your desired crispiness.
