    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!

    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..
