Bring the collected paneer under cold water and wash it to remove the lemon flavor. Squeeze out the excess water.

- Move this paneer to a bowl and crumble it finely. Add condensed milk, sugar and milk powder to this and combine well.
- Move this mixture to a non stick pan and cook on medium flame stirring continuously. Add cardamom powder to this and cook till the mixture leaves the sides of the pan (for about 4 - 6 minutes).
- Pour this mixture to the lined dish and spread it evenly and sprinkle the sliced nuts all over. Leave it to set for about 2 hours or so. Cut it to squares and serve cooled.
