This week I'm counting down my ten favorite dishes of 2007 -- and the absolute worst thing I ate all year.

#6. Nihari at Indian Food

Nihari doesn't look extraordinary. A dark stew, chopped cilantro scattered across its surface, chunks of beef shank bobbing ever so gently. First there's an explosion of lime, cilantro and -- more than anything else -- ginger. A breathtakingly sharp combination of flavors. Then the beef, a tough cut stewed tender, full of savor, with the buttery note of ghee. Then, on the finish, a hint of toasted cumin and cardamom that lingers just long enough to spice the next burst of ginger, lime and cilantro.
