garlic until golden, about 5 minutes.
Remove garlic if it gets too dark. Grind bread-almond mixture with a
mortar and pestle or in a food processor with a little boiling water until
fairly smooth, then stir in paprika and season with salt and pepper.

Add bread-almond mixture to the potatoes, along with remaining water.
