This was something that I never thought I’d make let alone to eat it. However the older I get the more creative I’m getting.

Stir until it goes brown ( I didn’t cook as long as I should have – I still liked the taste of it!). If you keep stirring it will become dough like and as soon as you stop it will become a liquid.
