How to Make Corn Nuggets

Maize, also known as corn, has been around for a very long time. It has a wide range of benefits from biofuel, medicine, chemicals, ornaments, fodder and most especially, human food.

Corn is an essential ingredient in cornbread and a lot of other baked products, Mexican food especially tortillas, popcorn, and even corn flakes as cereals usually eaten during breakfast and paired with milk.
