Put some gentle music in the background and cook your partner’s favourite dish with a twist. Along with loads of love, add in some healthy ingredients as well with wishes for his/her good health," says Dr Meghana Pasi, Nutrition Consultant, MyThali Program, Arogya World in an interview with HT Digital.
