I would serve over rice.
I'm sorry, but that recipe reminds me of everything that was wrong with popular American cooking in the 1950s and 60s. Canned soup and mayonnaise? Frozen broccoli? Please!
Listen, it's easy to make the same dish for less money, with fewer weird chemical additives, more flavor and better texture.
Instead of the canned soup and mayo, make a simple cream sauce and flavor it with the curry, and perhaps some sauteed onions, carrots, and celery, or maybe just a good chicken broth (Swanson's is very good, as is Progresso).
Use fresh broccoli instead of frozen (which is to fresh as Tang is to an orange) -- just steam it and cut it up; the amount isn't at all critical.
I guarantee you that the results will be superior.
