Making outstanding kibbeh is an art form, and getting it just right might take a lot of practice. Make sure the kibbeh is crunchy but not too dry before serving. The casing must be thin but robust enough to hold the filler in place. The filling should complement rather than overpower the casing. Kibbeh should be savoury and moderately seasoned when eaten, never excessively spicy or bland.
