He was the first person to introduce and sell spices to the tourists coming from all over the world. His aim was to provide the best quality and best blends of spices to the foreign tourists. He made JOdhpur city (dry) popular for the spices with his mixing s and best quality spices and service. MV Spices is the old and original spices-seller of the city with great quality and service to the tourist. He and his spices are recommended by all the travel guide books.Unfortunately, Mr.Mohanlal Verhomal expired in 2004, leaving behind his family of seven daughters and his wife. Since they are women, but still they took step against the soceity to continue with the business in this men-dominating society of India.After his death, there are lots of duplicate shops around the market, they all have similar name, as they have-MV SPICES.All the other spices shops start their name with "M"-to confuse tourists. When you will visit the store you will find one of the daughter of Mr.Mohanlal Verhomal to explain you about the spices, teas and saffron. Meanwhile you can have a cup chai with them.More details you will find when you will visit the store. « less

Don't hesitate to visit this spice shop where the daughters who run it will share with you not only their passion for spices but also a true insight into Indian women's struggle to become part of a traditionally male dominated retail business. The spices are of good quality with the ingredients listed on the masala mixes and as promised I... More

He had told us their story (a family of many many girls whose father died at an early age. Against many odds they are successfully running the business.) Having 3 daughters and being... More

Inspirational and amazing and that's just the girls and team who run the store. What they don't know about the world of spice isn't worth knowing. The saffron challenge was amazing. I'd bought some saffron from Jaisalmer thought it was great but, I soon found out it was rubbish with the 'Water Test!' They even paid me for the spare... More

We discovered here a spicy world and an extraordinary family ! These girls are so brave, helpful, and interesting that we spent three days in the shop.
