Cook the chickpeas until al dente. Rinse them under cold running water, drain well and let cool. In the meantime, combine the soy yogurt, olive oil, curry powder, turmeric and salt in a bowl and whisk until smooth. When the chickpeas are completely cold, transfer them into a sald bowl, add the cucumber, green pepper, parsley and garlic and toss. Stir in the spiced soy yogurt, add the cumin and white pepper, toss again and refrigerate. This salad is best served very cold.
