  • 5 Potatoes medium size
  • 4 cup Water for parboiling
  • 0.5 cup Olive oil for deep frying
  • 0.5 teaspoon Sea salt
  • 0.5 teaspoon Crushed Black pepper
  • 0.5 cup Bravas Sauce


  • Get you ingredients ready.
  • Get the bravas sauce ready for patatas bravas.
  • Parboil the potatoes in salted water for 7–8 minutes, or until almost cooked (they will still feel firm when pierced with a knife). Drain thoroughly using a colander, peel and cube them.
  • Heat oil in a wok or a kadai submerge the potatoes into the hot oil and cook for 5 minutes till golden brown.
  • Once all potatoes are cooked transfer to a serving dish.
  • Sprinkle with sea salt to taste and toss with the bravas sauce until completely coated.


  • You can even avoid parboiling by double frying the potatoes. Simply fry till potatoes are cooked on low heat and cool them. Then fry them again on high heat till they turn golden. However, I think parboiling is simpler and quicker option.
