Sue says:

Just a few queries, your recipe tell you to add 1 tablespoon of ‘All Spices’ but this is not in the list of ingredients neither is ‘green masala’, could you explain what these are please? Also what is meant by ‘leave on dam’ for 10 mins. I really would like to try the recipe! Many thanks
