Preheat the oven to 375°F.

Put ginger, caraway, garam masala, salt, cayenne, coriander, turmeric, and garlic into a small bowl and stir well to combine.

Arrange chicken in a lightly oiled baking pan and season all over with spice mixture. Squeeze lemon over chicken, then place the rind inside the cavity. Drizzle chicken with ghee.

Roast, basting a few times, until a thermometer inserted in the thickest part of thigh reaches 170 to 175°F, about 1 1/2 hours. Set chicken aside to let rest for 10 minutes, then carve and serve.
