1. You can make this ahead and store in the fridge. But while doing so, add lemon juice just before serving.
2. Addition of ginger is optional. You can also add a green chilly in its place.
3. Feel free to add more water if you find the buttermilk too thick.
4. For best results, use a immersion blender to whisk the mixture. A electric hand beater also works well.
In a blender, place 2 tbsp yogurt, cilantro, mint and ginger and grind to a puree.
Now, add this paste to the remaining yogurt along with cumin powder, salt, water and lemon juice.
To serve, place ice cubes in a glass, pour buttermilk until a little more than 3/4 th full.
Sprinkle cumin powder on top.
