Dipping Sauce:
1 clove garlic, minced, or more to taste
½ teaspoon smoked paprika
1 pinch salt
1 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon sherry vinegar, or more to taste

½ teaspoon ground chipotle peppers
2 quarts cold water
1 tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon ground cumin
2 bay leaves
2 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
2 cups vegetable oil for frying


  • Combine garlic, 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika, and a pinch of salt in a mortar and pestle or food processor; process until smooth. Mix in mayonnaise, sherry vinegar, tomato paste, 1/4 teaspoon chipotle chile powder, and cayenne pepper until combined. Cover and refrigerate dipping sauce.

  • Heat the extra-virgin olive oil in a deep frying pan or large sauté pan and gently cook the onion, peppers and garlic with a couple of pinches of salt for 10 minutes or until softened. Stir in the paprika, cayenne and a squeeze of lemon juice. Stir for 1-2 minutes until fragrant, then pour in the passata and simmer gently for 20 minutes until thick. Set aside to cool a little, then use a stick blender to whizz the sauce to a purée (or, if you prefer, leave it chunky).
  • Meanwhile, heat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas 7. Peel and cut the potatoes into quarters, then cut into 2cm chunks. Put in a pan of cold salted water, bring to the boil, then simmer for 6-8 minutes until tender. Drain well, tip onto a tray lined with kitchen paper and dry well. Toss in a shallow roasting tin with the light olive/sunflower oil and sea salt. Add the rosemary, if using, then roast for 15-20 minutes until golden and crisp, turning once or twice.
  • Spoon half the brava sauce onto a serving platter, then top with the potatoes. Spoon over a little more sauce and sprinkle over the parsley to serve. If you like, serve with a dollop of aioli (for a cheat’s version, mix finely chopped garlic and a squeeze of lemon juice into shop-bought mayonnaise).

Top Asked Questions

How do you make patatas bravas with potatoes?
While your sauce simmers, put a large frying pan on a medium heat and add 0.5cm of olive oil. Cut your potatoes into large bite-sized chunks. Once the oil is hot, carefully add your potatoes to the pan. Cook them for around 8 minutes, turning occasionally, until golden all over.
What do you do with bravas potatoes in Spain?
As we told you before, the most typical use of bravas potatoes is eating them as a tapa, but there are excemptions and this is one of them. It might not be so common to see, but mixing a few patatas bravas with a delicious "pollo al ajillo", to keep the Spanish mood, would be fantastic idea.
Which is the best form of patatas bravas?
The purest form of patatas bravas, however, is simple: potatoes smothered in bravas sauce and nothing else. Maybe you’ve already fallen in love with patatas bravas and you want to make them at home.
How long does it take to fry patatas bravas?
Increase the heat to 300℉/150℃ and fry your patatas bravas until golden (turn regularly). This also takes about 7 minutes. Take the patatas out of the pan and let them drain on a paper towel. Note 1 - The olive oil should not be hotter at this point as you want to boil the potatoes not yet fry them.
