How do I thicken curry sauce?
If you love Indian food, then you probably already know that curry sauces are thickened with flour or cornstarch.
The problem is that these ingredients aren’t always gluten free, and they also tend to add extra calories.
There are other ways to thicken curry sauces without using flour or starch.
In this article, we’ll explain you how to make a delicious gluten-free curry sauce that tastes great and won’t leave you feeling bloated

Reduce The Curry Sauce

To thicken curry sauce, reduce the quantity of liquid in the recipe. For instance, if you are making a curry sauce from scratch, instead of using 1 cup of water, use half a cup of water and half a cup of milk. This will give you a thicker consistency.

Make A Simple Roux With Flour

Roux is a mixture of flour and fat used to thicken sauces and soups. To make a roux, mix equal parts of butter and flour together in a pan until the mixture resembles crumbs. Heat the mixture over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture turns golden brown. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in 2 tablespoons of cold water. Let the mixture cool completely before adding other ingredients.

Adding Corn, Tapioca, Potato, or Arrowroot Starch

To make a thickened soup or sauce, combine 1 cup of cornstarch with 3 cups of liquid water, broth, milk in a saucepan. Stir over low heat until the mixture comes to a simmer. Add the remaining ingredients and bring back to a simmer. Simmer gently for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve immediately.

Add Lentils To Your Curry Sauce

Lentils are a great addition to any curry dish. They provide a nice texture and flavor to the dish. In India, lentils are used extensively in curries. Here’s how to make a quick and easy lentil curry sauce. Ingredients: 1/2 cup dried red lentils

Add Mashed Potatoes

You can add mashed potatoes to your lentil curry sauce. It gives a nice creamy consistency to the dish. Ingredients: 3 cups cooked mashed potato 1/4 cup milk 1 teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon butter 1/8 teaspoon black pepper Cooking Instructions: Put the cooked mashed potatoes into a bowl. Mix well. Add milk, salt, butter and pepper. Mix well. Serve warm.


Add ground nuts or nut butter to any dish where you would normally add salt. This includes salad dressings, dips, sauces, soups, stews, casseroles, pasta dishes, pizza toppings, breads, muffins, cookies, pancakes, waffles, etc. It is important to note that if you are using a nut butter that contains sugar, you will not get the same results as if you were adding salt. For instance, peanut butter does not taste salty because it contains natural sugars. However, if you added 1/2 cup of sugar to peanut butter, it would taste very sweet. So, if you are looking to cut back on sodium intake, try replacing salt with ground nuts or nut butter.

Add Butter, Yogurt, Cream, Or Coconut Milk

If you are trying to lose weight, you may want to replace some of the fat in your diet with nonfat dairy products such as yogurt, cream, or coconut milk. These products are low in calories and high in protein. They also provide calcium and other nutrients that help build strong bones.


Add butter, yogurt, cream, or even coconut milk to your favorite recipes. It’s easy to swap these ingredients for regular fat in many dishes. Just remember to reduce the amount of liquid in the recipe to compensate for the added fat. 9. Answer: Replace butter with olive oil or vegetable oil. Olive oil contains monounsaturated fats, which are heart healthy. Vegetable oils are rich in polyunsaturated fats, which are good for your skin and hair.

Add Tomato Paste

Tomato paste is a great ingredient to add to any dish. It adds flavor and color to your dish. It is very versatile and can be used in many different ways. 10. Answer: Use low-fat dairy products such as skimmed milk, non-dairy creamer, and reduced-fat cheese instead of whole milk. Whole milk is higher in calories than other types of dairy products.
