A Trip To Mumbai in the ‘70s – Let’s Make Eggs Kejriwal



Today I’m continuing the best traditions of quarantine – traveling through food. We will be going back in time – to Mumbai in the ‘70s. At the time, it was called Bombay (I’m sad it’s been changed). This breakfast was created by some guy called Devi Prasad Kejriwal by asking to make the eggs he’d ordered in a specific way he came up with.

I hadn’t heard of eggs prepared this way until recently, but, apparently, it used to be very popular in Indian social clubs and is now gaining momentum in New York and London.

Maybe, thanks to this article, it will become even more popular. At the end of the day, I am a trendsetter! The dish is very easy to make, and all ingredients needed for it can usually be found in any fridge.

As with all meals of the world, Kejriwal eggs have roughly a million interpretations – here is mine. Once you try this, feel free to experiment with various peppers and paprikas, quail eggs, crème fraîche, and other bonus seasonings.


  • grated cheddar cheese;
  • 1 slice of white toast;
  • 1 teaspoon of mustard;
  • pat of butter;
  • 1 egg;
  • some finely chopped bell pepper;
  • some chili pepper slices;
  • cilantro;
  • finely sliced onion;
  • ketchup for serving (optional, but I liked it very much)


  1. Toast the bread in butter. Spread mustard on one side.
  2. In a bowl, mix the cheese, bell pepper, chili, onion, and cilantro together. Spread it on top of the mustard. Now throw this into your oven, turn on the fan, and wait until the cheese melts.
  3. Meanwhile, fry the egg. Please tell me you know how to do this.
  4. Top the sandwich with the egg and eat. Enjoy!
