Stir it in until they change colour and slightly wilt. Stir in seasoning until fragrant. Add capsicum and chili. Continue stirring until shiny and translucent. Add lemon juice and tomato. Stir gently to combine and incorporate; for a few minutes. Remove away from heat, cover and allow to stand for a little while. Cooking time is approximately 15 minutes.
