Patatas bravas (Spanish: [paˈtatas ˈbɾaβas]), also called patatas a la brava or papas bravas, is a dish native to Spain, often served as a tapa in bars. It typically consists of white potatoes that have been cut into irregular cubes of about two centimetres, then fried in oil and served warm with a sauce such as a spicy tomato sauce. This dish is commonly served in restaurants and bars in Madrid and throughout Spain
The potatoes are boiled in salted water for several minutes to tenderize them. They are then rubbed dry and deep fried.
Preparation of the accompanying sauce varies by city. In Burgos, the sauce is tomato-based, and also includes vinegar, red pepper, and a variety of spices which give it bite. This sauce also accompanies patatas aioli, a form of fried potato traditionally prepared with olive oil and garlic.
In Valencia and Catalonia the dish is traditionally served alongside aioli. Taste your Patatas Bravas with our outstanding SPANISH ALLIOLI LA GITANA
SPANISH SALSA BRAVA
AUTHENTIC SPANISH FLAVOUR
Don't let the "hot" in its name scare you away! Spanish cuisine is not like Mexican cuisine. Salsa Brava is mildly spicy but by no means overwhelming. It is used in Spain to prepare “Patatas Bravas”, the traditional tapa of crispy potatoes with hot sauce (but you can use it in other dishes as well).
