A reader recently sent in a question about how fast food options in India compare to those in the US.

In India, the answer was “a lot,” said a reader, and the top five were: banana smoothie, dosa, burger, samosa and muddi. 

This, he said, is a “real shame” because in the UK, fast food outlets offer a range of options, from a curry and biryani to a burger and muffins.
