In same pan used for the ciabatta, warm 1 teaspoon oil over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Stir in the chopped shallots and remaining spice blend and cook until the shallots start to soften, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the chickpeas and ½ cup water and simmer until the liquid has reduced and the chickpeas are tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat.
While the chickpeas cook, prepare the lime yogurt.
