Ingredients
  

  • 200 g basmati rice
  • 15 g dried porcini mushrooms
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil 
  • 6 flat mushrooms sliced
  • 1 onion thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic  crushed

  • 200 ml half-fat soured cream 
  • a handful of leaves flat-leaf parsley chopped

Instructions
 

  • Tip the rice into a small lidded pan with 400ml of water and a pinch of salt. Bring to the boil, turn down to a very gentle simmer, put on a lid and cook gently for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and leave to steam for another 10 minutes before fluffing up with a fork.
  • Meanwhile, put the porcini mushrooms into a small bowl and pour over 150ml of just-boiled water. Heat the oil in a large non- stick frying pan and fry the flat mushrooms and onion for 10 minutes until all of the water has evaporated and everything is beginning to caramelise.
  • Add the garlic, paprika and tomato purée, and cook for 1 minute. Meanwhile, drain the porcini, keeping the liquid, and roughly chop. Add to the pan, along with the soaking liquid, turn down the heat to low and cook gently for 10 minutes, adding a splash of water if it’s a little thick. Stir through the soured cream and season.
  • Spoon the rice onto plates, spoon the stroganoff over the top, and scatter with parsley.

Spanish tortilla with paprika ketchup

Spanish tortilla with paprika ketchup

What could be more satisfying than homemade tortilla? Ours comes with homemade paprika ketchup, made using fresh vine tomatoes, pimentón, garlic granules and red wine vinegar
Total Time 1 hr 30 mins
Calories 209 kcal

Ingredients
  

  • 450 g waxy potatoes peeled
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion finely sliced
  • 6 large eggs

PAPRIKA KETCHUP

  • 600 g large ripe vine tomatoes roughly chopped
  • 60 g tomato purée
  • 2 tbsp hot smoked paprika (pimentón) * (see cook's notes, below)
  • 1 tsp garlic granules
  • 1/4 tsp celery salt 
  • 1/4 tsp fine sea salt
  • 4 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 50 g soft light brown sugar

Instructions
 

  • To make the ketchup, put the tomatoes, tomato purée, paprika, garlic, celery salt and salt in a pan with a grinding of black pepper, and mix well. Cook, covered, for 15 minutes, then uncovered for 15-20 minutes more, stirring frequently until reduced to a thick sauce. Remove from the heat and blend with a stick blender until smooth. Strain through a sieve into another pan, and stir in the vinegar and sugar. Cook over a low heat for 15-20 minutes or until it forms a smooth, shiny ketchup consistency. Spoon into a sterilised jar or bottle and, once cool, keep in the fridge for up to four weeks.
  • Cut the potatoes into thin slices, put into a pan of cold water with a large pinch of salt, bring to a gentle simmer, then remove from the heat and leave for 5 minutes. Drain well and leave to steam-dry in the colander for a few minutes.
  • Meanwhile, heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a 20cm non-stick frying pan and fry the onion gently for 8-10 minutes, or until soft but not golden. Whisk the eggs with some seasoning in a bowl.
  • Tip the potatoes into the beaten eggs and mix carefully to avoid breaking up the slices. Pour the mixture over the onions in the pan, and leave the base to set over a medium-low heat for 10-15 minutes. When the sides are set, flip the tortilla onto a plate. Add the remaining 1 tbsp oil to the pan, slide the tortilla back in and cook for 5 minutes until set and cooked through. Serve warm or chilled in slices, with a spoon of the paprika ketchup for dunking in.

* Cook's notes

  • Smoked paprika is known as pimentón in Spain, and is widely used in Spanish cooking. This vivid red spice is very different to Hungarian paprika in both look and flavour. To make pimentón, red peppers are dried over wood smoke and then ground to give a smoky, earthy spice. It comes either picante (hot and spicy) or dulce (mellow and sweet). The finest Spanish pimentón has DOP status – check the packaging when buying.
