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.

It isn't cheap shop, but there is a story behind and the spices are good. The girls are running this shop and they offer also some special mix spices (brain mix, mix by getting sick, rajasthani tea spices etc). Very delicious tea - I bought black with rose leaves. They don't have everything, but you can drink a cup of... More

The tea is great, you can try them, smell them (and buy them), and it's all the best quality - you can even ship them home. She's so happy to help and has excellent knowledge about her trade which is very interesting!

The lovely Neela was one of the seven sisters to welcome us into her shop. She kindly talked us through the various spices allowing us to smell and taste. We also felt happy knowing we were supporting a business run by women. Wonderful experience, don't go anywhere else!

We were looking for MV Spices having heard it was the best spice buying experience in Jodhpur (and probably in India). Be warned that there are a number of other spice shops with similar names, so make sure you are at Shop 209-B Inside Vegetable Market, Clock Tower, Jodhpur. MV Spices do have 2 other stores, located outside of the... More

I can only recommend this spice shop in Jodhpur, not only for tourists. Our family took the masalas back to Mumbai, Switzerland, and the UK. Kavita just sent us a recipe booklet, which is great as it allows us to try out some of the amazing masalas we purchased!
