Blend the water, the corn, and the flour, reserve
Add the water or oil to a frying pan, then add the onions, sauté for 3 minutes, add the cabbage and the salt, sauté for 5-7 minutes in low heat, until the cabbages are soft. Add the pepper and garlic powder, stir for 1 minute more. Add the corn and flour batter, change the heat to medium, stir for 10 minutes, folding it.
Turn off the heat, transfer the nuggets batter onto a plate, cover it with plastic film, and wait until it cools down completely.
On a bowl, mix the water, the flour, the garlic and onion powder, the salt, and pepper, and the paprika, whisk to combine.
Add the crushed cornflakes onto a separate bowl. Take a small piece of the nuggets dough, roll in between your hands, then shape it into a nugget shape. Place it into the batter, then the cornflakes, then put them into the air fryer basket. Do not overcrowd them.
Fry them for 15 minutes at 180C. If you prefer you can bake them in the oven for 20 minutes at the same temperature or shallow fry them in oil, on medium heat for 3 minutes each side.
