Novels with an Indian theme
Novels with an Indian theme have been referred to as Anglo Indian fiction.
Note however, that Anglo Indian fiction does not refer to fiction by, or about, persons of mixed British and Indian race. Rather it refers to fiction by British writers living in India, or British writers with a connection to India, or even, in some contexts fiction by Indian authors written during the British Raj period.
