You can make this curry oil free by just simmering everything from the beginning in a splash of broth.
Or, for enhanced flavor, you can sauté the aromatics first. In a heavy bottomed pot or dutch, heat little bit of oil over medium heat and sauté onions, carrots, and/or peppers for 5 minutes or so. Add the ginger, garlic, and curry and stir for 1 minute, until fragrant.
Add the rest of the ingredients (except leaves and garnishes) Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes or so, or until the longest-cooking vegetables are done.
Add broth or coconut milk to thin or 1-2 tsp of cornstarch or arrowroot powder to thicken (mix it with a bit of water before you add it).
