Courgettes straws with Coriander Yogurt Dip

Courgette Straws with Coriander Yogurt Dip: A zesty lemony and crispy courgette straws served with refreshing coriander yoghurt dip. The family loves courgette in any form and that’s why I always have a bag of them in my refrigerator. This is the one vegetable that we all like and I love adding it to my curries, pasta, salad,lasagna, rice? soup and what not.

This time, I made these crispy and delicious courgette sticks and my courgette lover family finished them in seconds.Normally to make the fried courgette sticks egg wash is used to help to coat the bread crumbs.I did not use anything as my straws were already moisture with lemon juice and it was easy to coat them in bread crumbs.But as always you can use egg wash or all-purpose flour paste to help to coat the bread crumbs. Try baking them instead of frying and to make them a guilt-free bite size snack.
