Mumbai street food is popular for its variety and taste. One such well-known street food item is Eggs Kejriwal, which is simply egg on toast. The easy-to-make dish is cooked with a layer of cheese and then topped with finely chopped green chillies. Served with crispy toasted bread or bun, the dish gets its name from one Devi Prasad Kejriwal, who is believed to have eaten the dish on an everyday basis at Willingdon Sports Club. It is said that the dish became so popular that it got added to the menu as ‘Eggs Kejriwal’.
