Make this classic tapas dish part of your cooking repertoire – it's simply potatoes in a spicy tomato sauce.

Ingredients
For the sauce
3 tbsp olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
227g can chopped tomatoes
1 tbsp tomato purée
2 tsp sweet paprika (pimenton)
good pinch chilli powder
pinch sugar
chopped fresh parsley, to garnish

For the potatoes
900g potatoes, cut into small cubes
2 tbsp olive oil

Method
STEP 1
Heat the oil in a pan and fry the onion for about 5 mins until softened. Add the garlic, chopped tomatoes, tomato purée, sweet paprika, chilli powder, sugar and a pinch of salt, then bring to the boil, stirring occasionally. Lower to a simmer and cook for 10 mins until pulpy. Can be kept chilled for up to 24 hrs.

Pat the potatoes dry with kitchen paper, then tip into a roasting tin and toss in the olive oil and some seasoning. Roast for 40-50 mins until crisp and golden. Tip the potatoes into serving dishes and spoon over the tomato sauce. Sprinkle with some fresh parsley to serve.
