Im so sorry for troubling you Confused

Yes here's the recipe, just replace the mawa/khoya with milk powder Big smile

Ingredients
14 oz/397 g. or 5 measuring cups, mawa powder or klim milk powder, or any milk powder that is available
3 sticks or 375g. butter 
1 cup milk
1 and 1/4 cup sugar
1 cup almond powder
1 tablespoon cardamom (elachi) (ground)
2 teaspoons nutmeg (ground)
A pinch of salt
1 tsp. rose essence (optional)

Method
 Sieve the milk powder to remove lumps
 Use a pot with a heavy base. on medium heat, melt butter; add milk & then sugar. These steps can be blended together. Mix, stir frequently. Wait for it to rise up & boil
Lower heat and allow to cook another 1-2 minutes. Lower heat & gradually add milk powder 
Stir and let it mix well with the other ingredients, about 3-5 minutes. It should be a thick consistency and not stick to the pot. The bubbles will indicate that it is done and it will easily pull away from the edge of the pot. Take care to ensure it does not brown at the bottom 
Add almond powder, salt, and flavorings. Put into tray to set. Smooth top with back of spoon or spatula. Add colorful almonds and gently press.
When it is firm, a few hours later, slice into pieces and serve.
