Katakat کٹاکٹ

Katakat is a very delicious dish prepared on a large Iron skillet with the help of sharp choppers. The sound produced during its cooking like "katakat" when sharp blades, chops and struck against the surface of skillet. Katakat is very popular in Karachi. It is prepared with organ meat and testicles of goat. But I am not using here testicles, instead I used mutton cubes.
