Victory gave England a 1-0 lead in a four-match series which if they win it by two Tests will see them replace India at the top of the ICC’s Test Championship table.
India, needing what would have been a Test record fourth innings victory total of 458, were bowled out for 261.
Anderson took five for 65 in 28 overs during an innings where Suresh Raina top-scored with 78.
Kevin Pietersen was named man-of-the-match for his 202 not out in England’s first innings 474 for eight declared.
Before tea India had seen Sachin Tendulkar’s latest bid to score his 100th international hundred, and first in a Lord’s Test, end in failure when he was lbw to Anderson for 12.
Raina, on 63, with India 243 for six, survived a huge lbw appeal from Broad which replays indicated was right in front.
Tendulkar, in front of a capacity crowd in what was the 2,000th Test of all-time and the 100th between the two countries, rarely looked comfortable from then on and he might have been lbw for 11 to Broad.
India were 165 for five with the 38-year-old Tendulkar, who has now made 195 runs in nine Test innings at Lord’s at an average of 21.66 with a best of 37 four years ago, contemplating the possibility his glittering career will not include a Test century at the ‘home of cricket’.
England captain Andrew Strauss described his side’s performance as “outstanding”.
The series continues with the second Test at Trent Bridge starting Friday.
England 474 for 8 dec (Pietersen 202*, Trott 71, Praveen 5-106) and 269 for 6 dec (Prior 103*, Broad 74*, Ishant 4-59) beat India 286 (Dravid 103*, Broad 4-37, Tremlett 3-80) and 261 (Raina 78, Laxman 56, Anderson 5-65, Broad 3-57) by 196 runs.
