Heat the ghee in a heavy pot, drop in the whole cloves, cinnamon, bay leaf. Fry till the cumin seeds turn brown. Add the marinated potatoes & stir fry till they are lightly browned. Add the rice, salt, turmeric, lemon juice, water & sugar. Stir & quickly bring to a full boil. Reduce heat to very low & cover with a tight fitting lid. Simmer gently for 20 to 25 minutes. 5 minutes before the end, add the peas. Remove lid, turn off heat & add 1 tb ghee. Let rice sit for 5 minutes. Fluff & garnish each portion with lemon wedges.
