  15. Hi! I had some corn on the cob delivered in my Oddbox recently and didn’t know what to do with it. so Google brought me here! I omitted chili powder but other than that I followed the recipe for the first couple of times. Today I made the dish with cauliflower, chickpeas, lentils and some leftover carrots instead of corn. I didn‘t have any peanuts left, so used cashews. It still tasted amazing! I love the flavours!
