  • 1 tsp Mustard seed 
  • 0.5 tsp Cardamom powder 
  • pinch of salt 

Fry all the herbs briefly in some vegetable butter. Then add the strips of fennel and stir. Set the heat source to a medium heat to allow the fennel to cook.

Stay close, as the herbs can burn. When the herbs threaten to burn, you should lower the heat source. The strips of fennel cook quickly. I would say: taste and serve!
