"Stumbler" or "Scrumbler" is nothing but scrambled eggs over roasted bread bites.
This is a very popular dish which is a complete meal in itself, in most parts of Mangalore and surrounding areas.
I had completely forgotten about this recipe, until last week when a friend of mine reminded me about how we all used to love this during our childhood days.
Even today if you pass through certain areas in Mangalore,
all you can hear is "One plate Stumbler please....."
I made this today and my daughter who does not really like scrambled eggs, loved this cause of the crispy bread in it.
Try this am sure you'll love it too....!
