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

The only shop in India where I actually felt welcome and where I did not feel obligated to buy something. I did buy from them however because it was such a great shop.

Visited the shop as part of an organised tour as presumably most do. We were greeted and offered chair before hearing about the various spices available in a friendly and knowledgeable manner. The products were perhaps a little pricey but I do think they were good quality. Were you there on your own I imagine all the information would have... More

We read in Lonely Planet, they had recommended spices and when we came to the fortress in Jodhpur, we found them right outside! We bought cool christmaspresents and nice spices for ourselves. Haven't tried them all yet, but thos we have tried are really good.

The store owner was very kind and patient to explain how to use every spice and she gave us a lot of excellent recepies, that we tried once back home. In few words, a... More

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
