Heat the ghee or oil in a high-sided 12-inch skillet over medium until shimmering. Add the onion, ginger, and garlic and stir to coat. Add the garam masala, coriander, paprika, cayenne, and salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is softened, about 10 minutes. Add the tomato paste, stir to coat the aromatics, and cook for 1 minute.

Add the cauliflower and carrots and stir well to coat with spices. Add the tomatoes and broth and stir to combine, scraping up the browned bits from the bottom of the bottom of the pan. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer until the vegetables are just tender, 20 to 25 minutes.

Stir in the peas and cream and simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally, until thickened, 10 to 15 minutes. Serve over basmati rice and top with cilantro.
