To make the zucchini sticks, cut them into sticks that are about three inches long and half an inch thick.

Attitude and Outerwear:

Salt the zucchini sticks, then let them aside for about ten minutes to allow the salt to be absorbed. As a result, this helps to extract moisture.

Turn the zucchini sticks over halfway through the cooking process and continue baking them in an oven that has been preheated for twenty to twenty-five minutes.
Make the Sauce: While the zucchini sticks are baking, make the dipping sauce from the ingredients listed above. Mix the sour cream, garlic that has been minced, and dill that has been chopped together in a small bowl. Perform thorough mixing until all of the components are integrated.
Prior to serving, take the zucchini sticks out of the oven and place them on a wire rack to allow them to cool down somewhat.
While the zucchini sticks are still warm, serve them with the sour cream and garlic sauce for individuals to dip into.


To get an even crispier texture: In order to get a texture that is even more crunchy, you may put the zucchini sticks that have been coated in the refrigerator for around fifteen minutes before baking them. By doing so, the coating is able to stabilize and become crispier when it is cooked.
