For rustic cheesecake I used some goat cheese along with cream cheese. Beat the eggs (3), vanilla 1/4 tsp, sugar (1 cup) together. Add room temperature cheese (1 packet) and mix well using a whisk. When mixture is smooth, add it to pre-prepared store bought graham cracker shell. Bake in 350 degree oven. Slice and sprinkle more sugar (1 tbsp) on strawberries. Leave aside. Spread around the cake after it has completely cooled down. Leave the cake in refrigerator for at least an hour before eating.

Mix the flour, water, spices and salt together using a whisk (smooth). Use mandolin to slice the vegetables into 1/4 inch thickness. Dip potatoes into batter and deep fry in oil using another saucepan/fryer on medium high heat. Fry for about a minute or two minutes or till light brown.
