Pasta Salad-A healthy salad with yogurt dressing

Pasta can be cooked in many ways but I like to make a simple salad with boiled pasta,chickpeas,cucumber and some fresh herbs.It's healthy,tasty and also takes less time to make as you can pre-boil the pastas,chickpeas and cut the cucumber and tomatoes and store them in a zip-lock pouch in the refrigerator.

Ingredients:
Boiled pasta(any shape)-1 cup
Boiled chickpeas-1/4 cups
Cucumber-1/2,finely chopped
Boiled baby potatoes-3-4,cut into halves
Tomatoes-1,finely chopped
For the Dressing:
Hung yogurt-2 tablespoons
Lome juice-3 teaspoons
Coriander leaves-3 teaspoons,finely chopped
Cumin seeds-2 teaspoons,dry roasted and crushed
Salt to taste
Chilli powder-1/4 teaspoons
Green chilli(optional) -1,finely chopped
Black pepper-3-4,crushed

Method: 
-Mix the pasta along with all the above ingredients and keep aside.
-Take another bowl and mix all the ingredients for dressing together and stir it with a spoon.
-Now add the dressing to the pasta mix and gently mix again and serve immediately.

My Notes: You can also add boiled and shredded chicken pieces to this salad.
