Wash and then boil the potatoes in their skins for about 12 minutes until partly cooked. Drain well and allow to cool. Then cut in half and reserve.

Heat in the oil in a large saucepan and saute the onions and garlic for about 5 minutes, until they begin to soften. Stir in the tomato paste, tomatoes, chili, paprika, wine vinegar.

Add the potatoes and mix into the sauce mixture until well coated. Cover with a lid and simmer on low heat for about 8 -10 minutes, until the potatoes become tender. Season with salt and pepper and sprinkle with parsley flakes before serving
