Fancy a Chindian?

If Indian and Chinese restaurants are so popular in the UK, what's popular in India and China?

This article in the Guardian is the sort of journalism I particularly enjoy: informative and unexpected, on a topic many have probably idly considered (I certainly have).

I was already aware that British 'Indian' cuisine is dissimilar to that consumed in India, but not the obvious point that the same applies elsewhere; for example, 'Chinese' food served in India is adapted to local tastes and available ingredients too.

Unsurprisingly, few nations seem to have developed their own popular variant of British cuisine.
