5 Authentic Indian Fast Food

Indian Fast Food

India is a vast country with a diverse population & culture. This multifariousness is reflected not only in the traditions and customs but also in food. The Indian fast food scene is so vast and advanced that India most definitely would top the charts if compared to any other country. Every region of India, be it north, west, south, or east, has its specialty and variety when it comes to fast food. In India, the term terms fast foods and street foods are used synonymously.

Major global fast-food chains like McDonald’s, Pizza hut, KFC, Domino’s, etc. have hundreds of outlets all over India as in India the trend of dining out has increased a lot in the last few decades. However, fast foods originating in India, are one of a kind due to the assortment of spices used to make them. If you happen to be a die-hard fast food fan, if you cannot resist gorging on quick delights then India is the country to be. 

Many of the traditional Indian dishes have been fitted to suit the emerging Indian fast food outlets. The basic adaptation is to cut back the processing and serving time. For example, the ordinary meal which called for being served by an ever-alert attendant is now offered as a Mini-Meal across the counter. In its traditional version, a plate was first laid down on the table. Waiters then would be serving the food one by one. In the fast-food version, a plate already arranged with all the items is handed out across the counter against a prepaid coupon. The curries and bread vary on the region and local preferences. The higher value ones may add a sweet to the combination.
