Dried Persian limes (limu-omani, or “limes from Oman”) can be found in Iranian markets. They have a distinctive taste that is quite different from fresh lime. Dried lime powder (gard-e limu-omani), made from limes grown in California, is apt to be bitter because it contains ground seeds; I recommend using whole limes, but be sure to pierce them with the point of a knife in several places before adding them to the recipe.
