Broccoli in a Cream Sauce

We were far from trying broccoli until i had a stir fry from my friends home, it was so good, i never felt i was eating something  i would have never ever tried, and felt bad to have kept away from such a great vegetable. From then on we bought lots and lots, and made different dishes.
This dish would come under the categories soup and a Side dish, whatever, this is one delicious food.
I want my little precious one to have some healthy stuffs, so broccoli is that kind of thing.  Little kids taste buds change every now and then, and i too try hard in getting hold of new new recipes.I wrote down this recipe long back from our family friends cook book, and im happy that i have this yummy recipe in hand. .
