Pakistan Street Food: Takatak/Kat-a-Kat

It is originally called " tawa gurda kapoora" which means kidneys and testicles in a large frying pan. To avoid the embarrassment of associating such words with food, most of us now call it Takatak. It refers to the sound made by the skillful chef while frying these organs and hitting the pan with two sharp slicers in a captivating rythm. He keeps slicing and frying them until the testicles, kidneys, heart & brain  become a mixture of meat and thick masala curry. You can make your pick and choose which parts to include in your serving.
