Limu Amani (dried lime) – a common ingredient in some of the most loved stews in Iranian cuisine.
I always take the seeds out because they are bitter, and I cut the limu amani in half so that the stew soaks up more of those delicious tangy citrus notes! 🍋
You can also add them to a classic noodle soup or tomato soup to add a bit of citrus flavour. 🥰
These dried limes can be sold in ground form too but beware that the ground form may include the seeds! If there is no information about that on the packaging, you can always buy the whole dried limes and grind your own with the seeds removed.
