The recipes in One Spice, Two Spice are easy to prepare, and intended to be taken as individual components of a meal. By applying Indian flavors to American style foods, it's easy to incorporate these dishes into everyday cooking, and add a little exotic flavor to an ordinary Tuesday night dinner. Cardoz does play with some classics, such as his Chicken Noodle Soup that incorporates turmeric, bay leaf, clove, ginger, cilantro, coriander, cumin, fresh green chilies, and chickpea-flour noodles cooked like spaetzle. In addition to the collection of recipes, Cardoz gives a nice overview of Indian spices and how they're used from a flavor standpoint in Indian cuisine. He introduces each recipe with a helpful description or story and offers serving suggestions for good accompaniments. It's a great book, and will build your familiarity in cooking with Indian spices.
The book contains photographs but they have that dated feel one gets from the promotional magazines they keep in hotels. They are okay but far from exquisite, which describes this book.
