My kids love this dish. They both love Broccoli, and we use a lot of it. This has such a wonderful curry flavor. If you don't like much curry, cut down the amount in the recipe, or leave it out completely. This can be served over rice, although we prefer it just as it is. If using with rice, I would suggest doubling the sauce. Enjoy! My photo's
