Meanwhile, thinly slice the potatoes, place a spring form pan on top of a flour tortilla, and line the pan with the sliced potatoes creating a ring (see video). Drizzle with olive oil, then place in the freezer for 1 hour or overnight. Next deep fry in hot oil until cooked, approximately 15-20 minutes.
