    Chakna (or "chaakna") is a spicy stew made out of goat tripe and other animal parts. It is a speciality dish among Hyderabadi Muslims. The Chaknawadi neighbourhood near Charminar in Hyderabad (India) is famous for its chakna. In Pakistan, the most famous place for chakna is in Karachi's Hyderabad Colony neighbourhood.
