Fried Rice with peas and potato

We all fry let over rice and lemon rice is my favorite recipe to make with them. But this time i thought of frying rice like maharastian aloo pohe. Sometime when rice is not enough i mix it with soaked pohe and prepare. Not everyone in my family is happy when i prepare left over rice for breakfast but i will give them funda about not throwing away food and make them eat :).
