Cook on a low flame for another 3 to 4 minutes or till the mixture leaves the sides of the pan, while stirring it continuously to ensure that it is not sticking to the bottom of the pan. Once it is cooked, it is not that sticky anymore and you will notice the color of rice flour khichu will change from white to pale yellow. Switch off the flame and it is ready to serve!
