Hello Manal,
My guess is that you could put a few pinches of anise seeds or fennel seeds into the dough. I say pinches, because although the seeds is small, the flavor is big.

Another alternative (suggested by the recipe itself) is anise extract (4 tsp instead of 1 tsp anise oil) as a replacement.

And if stores near you don't have that, maybe they have licorce (root) extract, which has a similar flavor.
