Creamy Broccoli curry

Its been festive time filled with lots of savories and sweets! Every other blog was filled with sweet recipes. And its time to switch to our routine foods!
We always have rotis in the night, mostly! Sometimes we feel like trying out something totally new. New means completely new! Doesnt that sound interesting?
I saw this broccoli recipe in Schmetterlinwords' blog, and at once I decided I will prepare that. Broccoli was never my favorite! Great healthy things do not taste heaven! But you can make them to taste and feel wonderful.

So this recipe will be going to the fortnight event organized by Radhika of Tickling Palates!
As per rule, I had to visit Shafa of schmetterlingwords.
She has some beautiful unique recipes, and totally new for us to fall in love with them!

For the Original recipe, check here.
I made some changes in the basic ingredients, as I'm not fond of coconut milk, which I replaced with Heavy cream to give a creamy heavenly taste!

You need:
To grind:
Coriander leaves/Cilantro - a small bunch
Cashew - 10 pieces
Onion - a handful of small shallots or 1 big
Green chillies - 2

Cinnamon - 2 small sticks
Cardamom - 3 pieces
Cloves - 3 pieces
Ginger garlic paste - 2 tsp
Broccoli florets - 400 g
Heavy cream - 3 tbsp

Take the ingredients from the grinding section and grind to a fine paste with addition of little water. Keep it aside.
Take a skillet, add oil. Saute the cinnamon, cardamom, cloves. Then add the ginger garlic paste. Saute until nice aroma comes. To this add the ground paste and cook in low flame. Now, add the broccoli florets and cook until broccoli is cooked but still crunchy. Keep stirring frequently and add cream and give a final stir. Switch off the flame once done.
Garnish with some coriander leaves and little cream. Serve hot for rotis, kulchas, or rice.

This curry is really very creamy with flavors of cinnamon. Once, we had this as a soup with little or small size broccoli florets. Try the way you want and post your suggestions for variations.

I am sending this entry for the event, Blog Hop Wednessday hosted by Radhika.
