The Bond movie you refer to was Octopussy, and it's not really that "old," since it was made in 1983. In fact, the dinner scene in Temple of Doom is said to be trying to one-up the scene in Octopussy where the villain, Kamal Khan (Louis Jordan) eats a sheep's eyeball.
I'm afraid I can't help you out with where to find parallels between TOD and Indian movies, but I do know that TOD was not received well at all in India. I think it was banned there for a while. I can find out more about this and I'll post that later.
