Every food has a backstory, a tale about how it came to be, how it became popular, how it tastes, and how it is regarded by locals and visitors alike. It is, nonetheless, important for any dish. While researching Indian street cuisines, I stumbled across Mangalore's stumbler eggs. It's one of the most popular street foods, consisting of scrambled eggs with small bread cubes. Everyone has a favourite area where they can get the best taste of something. The spices in the egg-coated bread slices add a delicious flavour to the dish. You must try this simple breakfast, snack, or lunch box meal in whatever way you like. It's simply a different way to make scrambled eggs. This could be a delectable surprise for your taste buds if you enjoy eggs. 

Egg Stumbler can be made in just 15 minutes with all-at-home ingredients such as eggs, vegetables, and bread. That is all there is to it. It's a good choice for snacks, mid-day meals, office lunches, and your child's lunch box. Eggs have always been a part of our diet because of our Indian origins.

Mix it well so that each bread cube gets covered in egg. Heat a flat pan and add butter. Lower the flame to medium, now slowly pour the egg mix over it. Cook on medium heat for 5-7 minutes stirring continuously.

While Mangalore is located on the Konkan coast, it is an ideal place to experience both the magnificent beauty of the south and the burgeoning techno business parks aspiring for a better future. Among the city's many features, one of the most noticeable is its street food. Because it is located on the coast, the city has an endless supply of coastal commodities such as coconut oil, shrimp, and rice, which are used in the majority of the city's street food.
