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

I had the best experience at MV spices. I expected just to walk in and buy some spices. I ended up spending hours just chatting with Nikki, bought 2 kilos of spices (which Nikki packaged and mailed to the US for me with an extra gift), and took a private cooking course. I learned so much about Indian (Rajasthani) cooking... More

What a wonderful accident to come across this shop in Jodhpur. The young women who run this shop are daughters of the founder and are stars of a recently produced documentary "The Spice Girls of India". Worth a visit just to hear the family' s story. Beware of the attempts by other shops to imitate by using M- initials and... More

What a great place! So much knowledge. and so willing to share it. The products are of high quality, teas as well as spices, and the owner takes all the time to help you and explain about everything, while having a cup of tea of choice, and without ever being pushy. Make sure you have the right one, many copycats... More

In MV Spices we finally felt free to just look and chat to about the various spices and teas. In other areas marketplace hawkers do ‘hassle’ and make ‘just looking’ impossible. This was our second visit and this time we knew to buy more teas and spices because they were such good quality and we don't want to run out... More
