This is my version of huevos a la Flamenca, which I originally made on 1 April 2018. It's gradually getting far away enough from the original recipe that it's time for a different name. This version is based on my attempts on 14 June 2018, 3 August 2018, 4 January 2020, 24 November 2020 and 31 December 2020.


Per portion

quantity       ingredient       step
80 g       potatoes       1
50 g       onions       1
5 g       garlic       1
40 g       chorizo, cooked and sliced       1
      oil or fat to fry       1
30 g       tomatoes       2
20 g       capsicum       2
3 g (1)       hot chili, optional       2
3 g       salt       2
40 g       peas       3
2       eggs       4


Steps 1 and 2 can be made in advance, preferably in a large kuali (wok). They can then be frozen, and portions can be thawed and processed through steps 3 and 4.

  1. Peel and dice potatoes, slice onions, finely chop garlic and fry with chorizo in fat until hot.

  2. Cut tomatoes finely. Chop capsicum into strips about 3 cm long. Cut optional chili into thin slices. Add all with salt to mixture and cook. Allow liquid to reduce.

  3. Add peas shortly before finished, or after thawing. When done, put in a deep serving dish.

  4. Break and beat the eggs. Mix in with the mixture. Cook in an “air fryer” for 20 minutes at 150°.

  5. Leave to cool for at least 15 minutes and up to 30. Serve:

The big difference from huevos a la Flamenca is the way that the eggs are cooked. Hueves a la flamenca bakes them. I've found baked eggs to be particularly unpleasant, and the process is tedious. I first tried frying them, then cooking them in the microwave oven, and now it's the “air fryer”.


A la tigre? That's feminine. But in Spanish tigers are masculine, el tigre. How could I make such a mistake? No, it's not a mistake. A clue: though most words in Romance languages have the same gender regardless of the language, some words are different in Italian: “il flauto”,”, “la tigre”, where in French or Spanish it would be « la flûte/la flauta » or « le tigre/el tigre ».
