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 stumbled upon this spice shop by the Jodhpur Clocktower and met one of the seven spice sisters, Neelam, who treated us like guests rather than customers.

We visited the place with our group. One of the daughters of the former owner and founder offered us tea. Then she showed us all kind of spices and teas. At home I tried the spices in my own kitchen. They are delicious! I really like them. Also the recipes!

I just would not buy anywhere else after having purchased theirs. I love their chai tea spices which make it so easy to make authentic Indian chai.
