Fried Lettuce

2 cups shredded lettuce
1 small onion sliced
1 potato diced then boiled
1 egg
Salt to taste
Spanish paprika Garlic powder
Cumin to taste
Black pepper to taste
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup water

Boil potatoes until soft. Drain water, and let cool. While potatoes cool, combine lettuce, onion, egg, salt, pepper, paprika, cumin, garlic powder and one-half cup water. Stir well, and let stand 15 minutes. Then add flour to thicken. Final mixture should not be too thick or too thin. With a large tablespoon, drop in hot oil and cook long enough to brown one side, about two minutes. Turn over, and brown other side, about two minutes.

Serves 2.
