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.

This the 2nd time we have visited this great store. We met the lovely Nikky who shared her knowledge of spices with us. A wonderful lady, we will definitely be back. There is no place like this, she makes you feel like your one of her family.

You can buy spices all over India. But when visiting this shop you will meet a very nice young lady (actually the daughter of the late owner) who will actually make you smell all kinds of spices first and give a detailed description on what you can use each and every kind of spice or spice mixture on - recipes...

I visited the spice shop with 2 friends in december - it was perfect! Neelam showed us how to tell the difference between real and fake safran and she explained the spices and answered our questions. We bought a lot of spices and what can I say? They're delicious and the cookbook is wonderful. My family loved the Maharaja Curry... More

Each time we're flying to India, this is the place we're looking for to get our spices! Not only are the spices great, but the owner is just adorable!

I decided to visit here on the recommendation of Trip Advisor and it was a lovely visit and I was able to pick up some saffron tea and some spice to make dahl (I became obsessed with dahl while in India!). But it wasn't until I came home and started cooking with the spices, that I really appreciated my visit.... More

What a great little place. Be sure to take the time to find it. The owner was genuinely interested in helping us take home the taste of smells of India. We didn't feel pressured to buy anything and had a pleasant shopping experience. The spices are delicious and made amazing gifts!
