This simple trick can thicken up any sauce you want. You will need 1 tbsp of cornstarch (you can also use potato starch or tapioca) and about 1/3 cup of water or coconut milk. Make sure the water or milk is cold, otherwise it might create lumps of starch. Just work with cold water and everything is going to be just fine.
Pour the mixture into the sauce while mixing and the sauce will start to thicken easily.
