Egg stumbler is one of the popular street snacks of Mangalore.
I stumbled upon egg stumbler on a social media platform, couple of months back. I was intrigued by the name of the dish and did some research on it. To my surprise, it turned out to be a street snack from Mangalore. Egg stumbler is nothing but spiced scrambled eggs, to which bread cubes are added and garnished with coriander leaves. So, made this dish a couple of times at home and was instantly liked by my folks at home.
Egg stumbler is a quick, simple dish that can be served as breakfast, tea time snack or for dinner. With eggs and bread cubes in the dish, it makes for a complete meal by itself. This makes for a good lunch box option for kids. So, egg-lovers, this one is a must-try dish for you. With all the ingredients that are easily available in any Indian kitchen, egg stumbler can be made in less than 15 minutes. This is a beginner friendly recipe and doesn’t call for any expertise.
Eggs and bread are commonly used for breakfast by many. This interesting recipe uses both the ingredients in one dish. Some other interesting breakfast (egg) recipes in this blog are Stuffed Masala Eggs, Batata Anda, Egg Spinach Wrap and Boiled Egg Sandwich
I have used whole-wheat bread for the recipe. However you can use any bread of your choice. I have used 3 eggs and 2 bread slices here as my family likes more of eggs in the dish. You can make the dish with equal number of eggs and bread slices , i.e. 3 slices of bread with 3 eggs. Add the bread cubes to the dish before the eggs are fully cooked so that the bread cubes are coated well with eggs.
