Lentils are the staple food for millions of people across the world, especially in South Asian societies.

One woman in Kathmandu tells her story - bringing up a family of seven by selling patties made of lentils and egg.

She tells us how she has adapted her cooking methods to keep up with the global rise in food prices.

There was a time when an entire family was fed by just one member going to work; now if only one member of a family is out of work, there will not be enough food for all.
