Just looking over this and realise there is a mistake at the end so here is the correct bit - sorry!

7.Now after 12-15 mins add in the 1 tsp kadai masala and remaining 1 tsp garam

8. 2 tblsp oil in pan add 1 cubed onion and 1 cubes capsicum and saut? for 3-4 mins, add to kadae and heat for 2 mins.

9. Lastly add in the ? lemon juice and chopped 2 tbls coriander and mix well.

I usually add base sauce to thin it out a little at the end
