The dish's name is an onomatopoeia from the sound of the two sharp blades that hit the griddle as they cut up the meat. It is still an open question whether the correct name is kata-kat or tak-a-tak_Kata Kat uses flatter version of Karahi as a griddle and two flat short handled Karahi spatulas or implement resembling Putty knives as cutting and stir-frying device
