Cut some broccoli florets and blanch them. Be very carefully as they cook very quickly. Once done chop them up nice and fine.
Roux can be made by mixing 1/2 butter and 1/2 maida. Mix it over low heat, let it cook for a while and when it turns golden it's done.
Heat butter in a pan, sweat garlic & onion, and add chopped broccoli and saute.
Season with salt, pepper & nutmeg powder. Saute and them take this mix out in a bowl.
Chill in the refrigerator for a couple of minutes.
In the meanwhile prepare the base.
The rule with stock and roux is that you mix them when either they are both cold or hot.
So we mix the roux and some of the stock both at room temperature into a paste.
Add the remaining stock to a pan. Bring it to a boil and them lower the heat and let it simmer.
Add the roux mix to it. Now while it simmers puree half of the broccoli mix and mix with the other half.
Add cheddar cheese and simmer.
Add the puree and fine broccoli mix.
Now add the cream. Mix well and remove from heat immediately.
Garnish with some cheese.
