  1. I think I did it before I added the dumplings but you could always do it after, just remove all the dumplings first then thicken if you’re going to do it after 🙂 hope that helps

  2. Ok so no-one replied 🤣 but I carried on anyway, didn’t use the corn flour to thicken it at all and it was lovely as is including the dumplings! Thanks for the recipe.
