Spanish tortilla

Spanish tortilla (tortilla española) called as well potato tortilla (tortilla de patatas), is a variation of an omlette with eggs and fried potatoes, to which sometimes onion is added. A typical one is prepared for several people and such a tortilla contains about 10 eggs and nearly 1 kg of potatoes, hence its dimensions, radius and thickness, are a little different than in the case of tortilla made by me. Regardless of the size, the taste remains the same:).
