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.

      Finished Gundam SEED tonight. As cliche as it could get, I still really enjoyed it. Mecha designs were above average.... and despite a lot of recycled animation during battles, I still found them engaging and entertaining... and all the love interests swapping around tickled my fancy. Character deaths were pretty brutal as well. Its def worth watching for the average fan. Better than Unicorn, but not IBO as far as recently watched Gundam series.

      I have to get a dead tree cut down on my property. Its going to cost me $500. x_x But that doesn't include the removal. To save money I'll borrow a chainsaw from one of my friends and cut up the pieces myself. The tree is tall enough that when it eventually falls, it could hit my house, the garage, the deck, the pool (when its up for the summer) or my propane tanks so its got to come down.

      Its been a month since my root canal. I had another appointment yesterday for the rest of the work. They removed the temporary filling, xrayed it to make sure its all good, then did the permanent filling, then shaved/shaped the tooth for the crown, then imprinted my teeth/jaw line with a mold, then put on my temporary crown. Took them an hour. My new permanent crown will be ready in 2 weeks and then I'll finally be done. This root canal situation has been quite the experience. $1200 total after insurance. I have another tooth that might need one if it gets another cavity. If that happens I think I'll have that one pulled instead since its in the far back. Screw all this. x_x

      One week ago my little dog Elsa had to get a surgery to remove a few bad teeth. The vet initially though it would be 2 teeth, maybe 4 max. After they did the xray they noticed she had severe bone loss in multiple parts of her jaw and the majority of her teeth had to be removed. She has 1/3 of her teeth left.  The vet thinks it is a genetic issue that caused the periodontal disease to ravage her jaw the way it did. Shes been healing but its been a struggle. Very depressing week but shes over the worst of it now. Shes starting to feel like her old self but we're still trying to find a soft food she enjoys. More bad news is after we heard it was genetic, we checked our other dog Bella because they are cousins and she has 2 loose teeth in the front. Once we get some stimulus money we'll schedule xrays for her to see if her issue is as bad. Elsa had horrible breath going on as the main symptom but Bella's breath is fine. I hope she only needs the 2 little teeth removed. My poor babies.

      A friend was able to score me a PS5 while I was at work today. I'm pretty pumped!
