Owner description: Mohanlal Verhomal was the legend of spices in JOdhpur city of Rajasthan. He was the pioneer of the spices. 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.

How refreshing! After so much hustling all over the Jodhpur market you enter MV spices and find yourself in an enclave of authenticity and peace. The story is well known: After their father dies the seven daughters and their mother took over the legendary business. Not just that they are doing the business in a great manner, but they are...

I am an avid cook and love Indian spices... I visited MV Spices in Jodhpur and was not disappointed. This place has both the reputation and service to support it! They gave a lovely demonstration of the spices, a fabulous cup of chai while we talked and a great experience at an authentic spice seller in India. PLUS, an email... More

They have 3 or 4 locations in Jodhpur but there are many copy cat shops that you don't want to go to. Make sure you visit this spice shop (Mohanlal Verhomal Sprices / MV Spices) run by the 7 sisters (aka "spice girls"). They have an incredible and affordable selection, will not lie about prices, do not sell saffron made... More

A delightful hour spent in the shop. There was no hard sell here - I learnt about the medicinal proprieties of the spices and the use for the various masala mixes so was soon buying, with confidence, a selection to bring back to the U.K. I was not disappointed when I made my first cup of masala chai on a...

In a large market full of spice vendors, Its nice to have a spot that has such a great reputation. Upon arrival, Neelam welcomed us in, we had a seat, she offered us masala chai and gave us a brief history of their business. We began sniffing and tasting different spice blends- and at the end of it, we choose... More

She explained well the different mixes of spices they carry, what the ingredients are and what goes best with each. She had us smell... More

We had a GREAT experience with Nicki, the founder's daughter, who now runs the MV Spices location near the north gate at the Jodhpur market (don't know the street name). There are 3 locations in town and you won't go wrong at any of them but Nicki is a gem - super friendly and speaks perfect English - always armed... More

She served us great tea and took the time to answer all of our questions I am enjoying my spices and the many recipes that they sent us. The Sisters have a compelling story. Beware of "copy cat spice stores" in the... More
