  1. My family loves curry so I tried this last night pretty much according to the recipe. I did put in a touch more curry (a tablespoon rather than two teaspoons) and I doubled the ginger. Still, the reaction I got was that my boys liked it but said it needed more flavor. I think next time I will bump up the curry more. Also, thickening it did not go according to the recipe. I ended up putting in the corn starch/water mixture a second time and then finally pouring the mix into a sauce pan to boil it in order to try and get it to thicken up. That worked, more or less. I may try it with flour next time.

    1. Hi Hal, I would recommend you try increasing your salt, instead of your curry. Those two spices love each other, so an increase to maybe 1/2-1 tsp of salt could enhance the curry flavors considerably. Also, depending on the temp of each individual slow cooker it could take a bit longer to cook the cornstarch and thicken. Try a few more minutes on high or several more minutes on low to achieve the desired thickness.
