Dried Persian Lime (Limu Omani) / Loomi Lemon

Dried limes can be added to soups, meat stews, and tagines. Two or three of the dried limes are added whole to the pot, and as the juices from the other vegetables, meats and spices, sluice through the lime, the sweet, tangy flavors combine with the stew. Whole Persian limes can also be added to the cooking liquid when making rice.

The acidity and flavor profile of whole Persian limes blends well with lighter stews that have chicken or fish, as well as adding a zesty flavor to simpler legume dishes that have lentils or chickpeas.
