1. Place the dals, minced ginger, green chili peppers, cardamom pods, cinnamon, turmeric, salt, and 4 1/2 cups water in a pressure cooker, Secure the lid and cook over high heat until the regulator indicated high pressure, then cook 1 minute more. 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 the pressure and cook under pressure another 25 to 20 seconds. Or, cover and boil until soft, about 30 minutes, adding water if needed. Transfer to a serving dish, cover, and keep warm.
2. Heat the oil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat and cook the onion and ginger matchsticks until golden, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the coriander and cumin, stir a few seconds, then remove from the heat and add the paprika. Lightly swirl everything into the dal, with parts of it visible as a garnish. Sprinkle the garam masala and cilantro on top, and serve.
