do you think you could reduce the water content on this recipe and it wouldnt impact the cooking too much? I dont want a watery curry i want a thick creamy one!!! hehe!

I might risk it and try this tonight with much less water. Or perhaps chicken bovril? - so its gloopy! oh pants, i really want to make it creamy and not watery!

Could you not just boil it for longer and reduce it that way?
