  • Remove the lid and if the sauce seems watery, keep cooking until reduced.
    At a push, stir in a tablespoon of cornflour dissolved in a little cold water to help thicken it up (This would add another syn)

Really nice curry and is a little bit "sweet and sour"
1/4 syn per portion or double if you thibken with cornflour
