Indian Dishes Join Fast-Food Ranks: PepsiCo's KFC just opened in India and McDonald's Corp. won't arrive until next year. But Indians needn't wait for a burger and fries. They're already available at privately held Nirula's, India's only home-grown fast-food chain. Each day 40,000 people crowd Nirula's 10 locations in the New Delhi area. One reason the small chain has done so well is because it's hard to find hygienic fast food in India.

India doesn't have a "Larousse Gastronomique," and the lack of a standard authority on food makes the menu at Mother India, a sensational new snack and sweet restaurant in Canoga Park, a bit problematic. Even Indians are bound to be a little baffled by all this inventory. We're talking foods from Gujarat, West Bengal and Tamil Nadu, states that stand about as far from each other as is possible in the Indian subcontinent, and that represent extremely diverse cultural regions.

The other night, I had a meal that was more fun, more absorbing, more memorable than anticipated; a meal whose pleasures caught me by surprise. A feast. I had been to the new India's Oven before and had a pretty good meal, so I thought I knew what to expect: decent-to-good northern Indian food, somewhat minimal service, deliciously reasonable prices. Recently, after the original location on Pico was destroyed by fire following the Rodney G.

What makes Somi run? Somi Rehil already owns Indian restaurants in Los Angeles, WesA. and Tarzana. Now he's opened one a block south of Action Central in newly gentrified downtown Burbank--just down the hill from Crocodile Cafe, Market City Caffe and a huge AMC Cineplex. Rehil is on the move. The man started with a Pico Boulevard restaurant called Sheesh Mahal, later altering the name to the more descriptive India's Tandoori.

McDonald's first Indian restaurant, and its first in the world with no beef on the menu, opened Sunday in New Delhi with a traditional Hindu ceremony and a rush of enthusiastic customers. O.P. Sahani, a 75-year-old retired civil servant, said he came all the way from Vrindavan, 90 miles south of New Delhi, to show his support for McDonald's efforts to do business with India. "They have not brought raw materials from overseas," Sahani said, proudly wearing a red-and-yellow McDonald's cap.

Before there was Jamba Juice and Robeks Juice, there was mango lassi. I have long had a thing for this refreshing, yogurt-based Indian drink--the original smoothie, you could say--that tempers spicy Indian food. Not long ago, I tasted the best mango lassi I've ever had at a newish Indian spot called Tamarin in Beverly Hills.

In the south Indian city of Bangalore, a high-stakes game of chicken is being played--and Col. Sanders could be the loser. At issue is the first of what Kentucky Fried Chicken hopes will soon be 30 of its restaurants in India. Its foes, who are trying to shut down the pioneering eatery, claim American fast food is a baneful influence on India's economy and environment, counter to the country's best interests and dangerous and unhealthy for those who eat it.

Unless you happen to find yourself on Artesia's Pioneer Boulevard, don't expect many surprises at one of our local Indian restaurants. India Cook House in Irvine may not surprise either, but the food is fresh, the service is courteous, and the kitchen is happy to deliver the heat, upon request. Like the majority of our Indian restaurants, this one also specializes in the meat-rich, heavily sauced dishes of northern India, as well as meats cooked in the tandoor, or cylindrical clay oven.
