Description: Mohanlal Verhomal was the legend of spices in JOdhpur city of Rajasthan...
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.

We had a great time shopping here. Without a doubt it's the best spice shop in India. Their spiced chai mix is great, and they are full of helpful suggestions of flavors.

As a volunteer working for a women's empowerment group in India, I was pleasantly surprised to see a female face behind the counter in Jodhpur. We went in to look at the spices and (perhaps) buy a few gifts and were greeted warmly by the lovely Neelam who taught us how to brew a perfect cup of chai, and let... More

We weren't expecting to buy any spices, but just "stopped in to look." We were greeted warmly and without pressure. Of course, we ended up buying spices and tea. The prices are good by comparison to the West (I can't compare to other spice shops because we didn't go to any others).

One of my favourite shops in India! The spices on display are incredible but even more impressive were the brilliant explanations given by Neelam. She took us through the different spices and spice mixes used in traditional Indian cooking and even taught us the difference between real and fake saffron! (Travellers beware!). Speaks excellent english and her young assistant was... More

We bought all our spices from here on our recent visit to India. We were helped by the lovely Neelam, daughter of Mohanlal who was really helpful (without being at all pushy). I had a list of spices to get and Neelam had all of them. She even sourced some Fenugreek leaves for me even though it wasn't the right... More
