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 anagramming the letters.
'leg' with letters rearranged 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" .)
