You can use parachment paper or aluminium foil too. Keep it aside.

In a pan put the crumbled paneer along with the coconut.
Mix them well and add in condensed milk and put on low heat.
Keep stirring and mixing it. Otherwise it'll stick to the bottom of the pan.
Keep stirring for 5-6 minutes, until paneer and condensed milk are well blended.
Add cardamom powder and milk powder.
Mix well.
Cook for another 2-3 minutes until all the moisture dries.
