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.
