Checking Floor Tile Mortar Coverage

Hello,

I'm installing floor tile in a small area and many of the instructional videos suggest periodically lifting tiles from the mortar bed to check for coverage.

When doing this do I need to re-trowel the mortar notches or can the tile just be dropped back into the pressed down mortar?

Thanks again
Anthony

I generally pull one near the beginning and if it is good and my mix and install system does not change I just keep going
