The best relationships are all about give and take - and for one couple, that perfect dynamic comes down to one thing.


IT worker Era Golwalkar recently tweeted out a photo of her very detailed shopping list, which she gave to her husband.

It includes tomatoes - some yellow and some red - as well as bhindi that isn't too soft or too hard, and medium-sized potatoes.

She explains that her husband "isn't a foodie," but she's pretty particular about food:

In a follow-up post, her husband Guarav shared the handy vegetable chart Era had made for him.

Era told the BBC:

After Gaurav and I got married three years ago we decided to split the household chores.

She explained that vegetable vendors picked up on Gaurav's naivety and started selling him spoiled vegetables.
