DELL VENUE VIDEO EXPERIENCE
I have already shared my experience using Dell Venue in my previous posts here & here. Today I wanted to share a short recipe video using Dell Venue just for all of you to get an idea of Dell's video quality. I used basic Widows Movie maker tool just to cut the video length no other fancy software were used. And this is my first ever video experience-) so I can say I am amateur at video blogging. I must say that it was not easy holding the tablet in one hand and the corn in the other, this is one reason I do not engage in video blogging ;-). Also I wish I had my other half to help out but anyway it was a pure learning experience to say the least.
VIDEO IN DELL VENUE 7
Dell Venue had 2 camera's obviously the back camera was the one I used to make the video (3 megapixel). I personally found that in natural day light the tablet does deliver good quality images. You can see the video below and come to your own conclusions. The below video was taken around 12 noon in mid day light and in my kitchen close to an open window. The darkness in the background is from the dark kitchen counter top and also the black glass top stove.

Recipe Source - Own
Prep time - 2 mins
Cook time - 3-4 minutes per chole
Serves - 2
Sweet Corn - 2 no
Salt - to taste
Lemon juice - 1 lemon
Red chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/3 tsp
Chat Masala - 1/2 tsp
1. Prep the corn by removing the outer layer (husk) and the silky stings of corn and set aside. I usually don't remove the husk but flip it backwards so that it gives me a grip while roasting them.
2. In a bowl combine the other ingredients - red chilli, turmeric, chaat masala, salt and lemon juice, mix well and set aside.
3. On the stove and bring it to medium- high flame. Hold the corn end along with the husk and find a good grip.
4. Place the corn on the fire and wait for it to crackle and puff up, once you hear that then turn the corn flipping it in all sides so that it is evenly roasted.
5. Repeat the same for the other corn, once done. Using the sliced lemon dip it with the spices and rub them generously on the corn.
Devour the most amazing spicy yet healthy snack :-)
1. You could use your own spice combination and eat them with a dab of unsalted butter / pepper.
2. Sweet corn tends to easy to chew and eat compared to cholam.
3. Take care not to burn yourself and stay away from fire. You could also keep the corn on a pulka mesh plate and roast them one by one.
