You can add more if you want the mathri sweeter.
In a small saucepan, combine jaggery and water. Heat till the jaggery melts. Let the syrup cool down to room temperature.
Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl –all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, sesame seeds, and fennel seeds.
Add the oil and ghee and rub it into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs and starts clumping together.
Add melted jaggery syrup and bring everything together to form the dough.
Mix the dough with your hands until it starts coming together.
There is no need to knead it. The mathri dough is not soft. It has to be pliable but tight.
Cover the dough with a cloth and let it rest for 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 180C. Line a baking tray with Silpat or parchment paper.
Divide the dough into two. Roll out each half to1/4th of an inch thickness.
Prick the rolled-out dough using a fork.
Cut into any shape you like using a knife or pizza-cutter or use a cookie-cutter.
Place on the prepared tray and bake for 20-25 minutes until light golden in color.
Cool completely and store in air-tight container. Enjoy!
