Heat oil in a deep frying pan set over medium-low heat. Add onion and gently cook for 15 minutes until soft and golden brown, stirring often. Remove onions with a slotted spoon and set aside, reserving oil in the pan.
Whisk eggs in a large bowl. Stir in onions, piquillos, garlic, olives and chickpeas. Season with paprika, salt and pepper.
Heat the reserved oil in the same pan over medium-low heat. Pour in the egg mixture, and gently cook for 10-12 minutes until the sides have started to set and the bottom has turned golden brown but the middle is still a little wobbly. Loosen the tortilla with a spatula if needed, then carefully invert onto a large plate. Next, slide it back into the pan; return the pan to the heat and continue cooking for another 5 minutes or so until the tortilla has set in the centre and is golden brown on both sides.
Slide the tortilla onto a serving plate and allow to cool to room temperature. Sprinkle with parsley. Cut into wedges and serve with harissa mayonnaise, yuzu mayonnaise and Moroccan chutney on the side.
