Wheat and jowar cookies (savory)

This is my finel recipe for this week and my cookie theme too. I have tasted this jowar cookies in a bakery from that time I wanted to make them at home. I made them few times too but for the first two times I made them with only sugar. In the combination of maida they did't taste much different. And I feel that sugar was dominating the jowar flour flavor. Then I reduced the sugar and changed the maida to whole wheat flour. Now they turned in to less sweeter with a salt flavor. In this recipe I changed the cumin flavor in to fennal flavor..
