To make the chutney, blend coriander, green chili, sugar, cumin seeds, lemon juice into a smooth paste and keep aside. Further for the tempering, in a non-stick pan, add oil. You can even use ghee if you wish to, it will enhance the taste. Next, add urad dal and mustard seeds. Here, we have only added urad dal but you can add chana dal too , as it is used in the traditional upma recipe. Both together would give coriander upma a nice nutty flavor. Next, add asafeotida, curry leaves and onions. Once onions are cooked add the roasted semolina and the prepared chutney. Cook everything together. Add hot water and stir continuously making sure the coriander upma is not sticking to the bottom of the pan or burning.

You can garnish the colorful and vibrant coriander upma with grated coconut and coriander if you wish to.
