Cooking the mango mixture until it starts to leave the sides of the pan is very important for the burfi to set properly.
The burfi mixture will not appear moist or runny, rather smooth and a bit fudgy.
If you pile up the burfi mixture in the center of the pan, it won't spread a lot or spread very slowly.
To check - Wet your bands and take a portion of the cooked burfi mixture. Try to roll into a small ball- you will be easily able to do so without the mixture sticking to your fingers
