I was asked to bring a dish to an event that was meatless, salt free, sugar free, pepper free, gluten free, non dairy and without nuts. I saw this recipe and substituted brown rice ground up in my coffee grinder for the flour, and I added lemongrass leaves to steep with the curry. It turned out fantastic! The salt and pepper were not at all missed, the dish tasted complete without it.
I would've given it more stars ,but it didn't provide enough veggies for 8,so I doubled+the spices+flour,+added 2 lb bags frozen cauliflour,+3 bags broccoli florets-IT TURNED OUT GREAT,A MILD+EASY CURRY
