1. Soak the chickpeas overnight in water to cover by 2 inches. Then drain and place them in a pressure cooker along with water, baking soda, and salt. Secure the lid and cook over high heat until the regulator indicates high pressure, then cook 1 minute more. Reduce the heat to low and continue to cook another 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow the pot to depressurize on its own, 12 to 15 minutes. Carefully open the lid and check to see if the beans are very soft with some of them broken if not, cover, bring up to pressure, and cook under high pressure another minute. Or cover and boil until the chickpeas are soft and creamy, about 30 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, in a food processor or a blender, process together the onion, green chili peppers, garlic, and ginger to make a paste. Remove to a bowl, then purée the tomatoes.
3. Heat the oil in a small nonstick saucepan over medium-high heat and add the cumin seeds they should sizzle upon contact with the hot oil. Quickly add the onion-garlic paste and cook, stirring over medium heat until browned, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes and cook until the juices evaporate, about 7 minutes.
4. Add the coriander, garam masala, turmeric, paprika, and lime juice, then add the yogurt a little at a time, stirring constantly to prevent it from curdling. Mix into the chickpeas and simmer about 15 minutes to blend the flavors. Add more water for a thinner curry. Transfer to a serving dish, ix in the cilantro and garam masala, and serve.
