Warm the oil in a large saucepan and sauté the ginger, garlic, turmeric, mustard seeds, cardamom and coriander, stirring frequently until fragrant (about one minute or two). Add the cauliflower and broccoli and a little water cover, and simmer until vegetables have softened a bit (about 5 minutes). Stir in the arugula and cook until wilted (about one more minute).
