can I reuse curry sauce for another curry?

My boyfriend asked me a prawn curry for dinner tomorrow. I have some curry sauce defrosting in the fridge from a previous chicken curry. It's just the sauce with no meat. I wouldn't want to throw it away as there is quite a bit.
Can I reuse it with prawns for a new curry or I'll have to start again from scratch?
I am wondering if there might be a chicken taste in that sauce that might not go well with the prawns and ruin everything. Also will it defrost well?

  1. really, it should be fine. defrost it and taste it. chicken is such a mild meat i don't see an issue with flavor.

    1. it'll be fine. hit it with a stick blender if the consistency is in doubt.
