- Heat the oil in a deep pan and fry the onions and garlic until they are lightly golden.
- Add the tomatoes and paprika and stir them for about 30 seconds.
- Stir in the potatoes so that they are coated in the oil and tomatoes.
- Add enough cold water or fish stock to cover and bring slowly to the boil.
