How much time does it take to cook this pak

i tried this recipe in two different variation:

the first one i replaced the milk powder with milk and it came out very soft, since i liked my paks soft all i have to do is pop it in the microwave for 30 seconds and i get it piping hot. also it tasted like chocolate

the second variation i omitted the desicated coconut and used dry raisins instead. it also came out well

AND I USED MILLET FLOUR WITH BOTH RECIPES!! aint nothing possible if u dont experiment with food. i must say i invented the millet flour goondh pak
