Crossword Genius

Set broken leg (3)


I believe the answer is:


'set' is the definition.
(both can mean to harden)

'broken leg' is the wordplay.
'broken' indicates an anagram.
'leg' anagrammed gives 'GEL'.

(Other definitions for gel that I've seen before include "Thicken" , "shock application?" , "shock treatment" , "It may be applied to locks" , "Hair treatment" .)
