Fennel Apple Almond Chaat

1 tsp fennel seeds
5 tbsp oil
1 cup flaked almonds (alas, it is important that they're flaked; whole almonds don't work)
1 tsp ground ginger
2 tbsp honey
1 lemon
2 fennel bulbs
3 sweet crispy apples
1/2 a cucumber or one or two Persian cucumbers
A handful of mint leaves
1 tsp garam masala
To make the almonds: coarsely grind fennel seeds. Heat oil in pan, fry almonds for a couple minutes until pale gold, then add fennel seeds, ginger, honey, and a little salt. Stir fry for a minute until caramelized.
Make the salad by thinly slicing fennel, apples, cucumbers, and mint. Make the dressing with 3 tbsp oil, 2 tbsp lemon juice, garam masala, and 1/2 tsp salt.
