    Help!!! I have no cornflour and my curry doesn't seem to be thickening. What else can I add?

    Cheers :p

    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!!! :clap:

    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 wonders!

    Finely chopped onions are used quite alot as a thickener for curries.

    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..
