Put all of the ingredients into a jar with a lid. Shake well, and brush it on to the corncobs just before you barbecue or grill them.
They will be ready when the kernels are tender and lightly browned.

Stir in the couscous, cover and let it stand for 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat the oil in a small pan, then put in the onion seeds, curry leaves, salt and peanuts.
