    What sort of curry is it? My DH is a chef so can help.....but I would say either reduce the sauce, use ordinary flour & count the syns or use some tomato puree. Hope this helps

    Thanks. I added some natural yoghurt and it thickened. It was the Slimming World Classic Curry and it was delicious!!!

    Bit too late now but I always chuck in a load of frozen spinach...thickens it up lovely and adds loads of nutrients too!

    Failing that (and this is controversial I believe!) add some instant potato...works wonders!

    There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living.

    Being on this diet is like being on a wagon that goes at speed then slows down, but it may even stop or go in reverse for a short time, so dont get off the wagon! If you get off, get thrown off, or lose your place, run after it! If that doesn't work, get the next immediate wagon. Fight to stay on the wagon it will take you to your destination

    Gravy granules I think also have some thickener in ? But you have to syn them.

    Glad it was good though !

    throw in some rice to absorb the excess liquid?
    you're going to have it on / with rice anyway presumably so a little bit that's already flavoured won't hurt..
