Mutton Taka Tak is a speciality of the Lahore. The dish’s name Taka-tak is an onomatopoeia from the sound of two sharp blades that hit the griddle as they cut up the meat. The speciality of this dish is that it is made from offal, meaning a mixture of various meat organs including brain, kidney, heart, liver and lamb chops in butter along with minced meat making it very nutritious and very scrumptious. It is like a non-vegetarian variation of Paav Bhajji that is a popular street food in India. Similar to paav bhajji mutton taka-tak is also served with paav.                                                   

The Lahori Mutton Taka Tak is finger-lickingly good.
