Take 1 big tomato (or 2 mid-size tomatoes), blanch them and put them on the side. Add a spoonful of oil in a pot or cooker (depending on what you have). Chop 1/2 an onion fine and add it to the oil till they turn a little pink. When they do, add 1/2 teaspoon of ginger-garlic paste and mix this well. Now add the blanches tomatoes to your cooker/ pot. Add salt to taste, 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric powder, 1 teaspoon of chilli powder, and 1 cup of water. Cook this for 5-8 minutes if you're using a cooker or for 15 minutes if you're using a pot. It's essentially cooked at that point but it needs to be blended to get that consistency as you see in the picture. You can use a blender or a wire mesh to do this. Ideally the gravy is supposed to be sweet, so depending on how sweet your tomatoes are, you can add 1 spoonful of sugar while you blend it.

For the potatoes - boil water in a vessel and peel 3-4 big potatoes while this boils. Cut the potatoes into cubes of you preferred size. Boil these potatoes and add salt. Remove and drain after they are boiled. Take a vessel and add 1 tablespoon of oil, 1 teaspoon of mustard seeds(black balls as I call em), 1 small green chilli (chopped in 2 pieces or more depending on your preference). Be careful when you add this to the oil as it may all sputter, but it's supposed to sputter, so it's all good. Lower the flame and add the potatoes at this point. Sprinkle 1/2 a teaspoon of turmeric powder, 1 teaspoon of chilly powder and mix this up well. Cut the gas when you feel the potatoes are cooked. You don't want to over-cook this as it will get dryer as you cook it more, so it depends on the consistency you like.

For the potatoes there are a lot of variations ... like ... variation 1 - once the potatoes are boiled, add just the turmeric powder in the vessel with oil before adding the potatoes; variation 2 - once the potatoes are boiled, add the turmeric, chilli, cumin seeds and coriander powder to the oil before adding the potatoes; variation 3 - once the potatoes are boiled, add 1 table spoon of garam masala mix before adding the potatoes; etc.

Turmeric is pretty 'hot' in terms of spice which's why I must've mentioned to put like half a teaspoon of it versus the others. It's a different kind of heat! Well, the tomato gravy is actually sweet ^_^, the potatoes can be made a little spicy to off-set the sweetness of the tomatoes hehe, thus making a good counter-balance.

      Funimation put up Your Name. I remember all the hype behind this film and how it it became the highest grossing anime at the box office. After watching it, it was kinda a letdown. I mean it wasn't bad, but Spirited Away is immensely superior to this movie. Its worth watching, but I wouldn't grade it above a solid straight to Netflix feature.

      Please Sony don't do what MS did and have a lame ass montage of a bunch of generic people talking about a console's vague specs you don't get to look at. Don't bother having a presser until physical hardware is ready to see and they're are games to announce for it. 🙄 I hope you missed E3 for this reason, and you're own event will not feature this garbage.

      The French Open... freakin' Tennis out of all things is going to cause a 2 week delay for Fruits Basket, literally the highlight of my Fridays. UGH I can't blame Cartoon Network this time....

      Only anime can make a great story out of the most basic and odd themes. Like playing the koto after school. Kono Oto Tomare! is this seasons pleasant surprise and one of the reasons i watch most of every simuldub season's offerings. The OP would be #1 this season if it wasn't for Fruits Basket.  The characters are interesting, and their backstories are slowly unfolding in intriguing ways. I look forward to seeing how it all blossoms in the end.
