Sunday ho ya Monday roz khao anday. Indeed, this is the mantra many of us who love eggs follow. Scrambled, fried, poached, eggs are the most versatile starting point for breakfast. Protein-packed eggs are one of the most popular choices when it comes to an evening snack or even an ingredient to boost the flavours of any dish. Usually eaten in a savoury form, eggs lend themselves equally well to desserts too. From a road-side stall to a plush restaurant, Mumbai serves the humble egg in myriad ways, albeit all delectable. My top 10 picks are here.
