Sometimes ingredients around you push your creativity to such an extent that you feel pleased that you were short of ingredients. I promised a sick friend done dinner but the buns weren't enough and then my oven was on for baking mini pizzas for kids and there was enough left over dough from them. Enough reasons for me to experiment with potato filling of dabeli,dough and a hot oven ! They turned out delicious !! Next time around will mark the covering with whole wheat flour and make it healthier! :))
