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 were recommended this stop by our tourist driver who said we would greatly enjoy meeting the owners of the shop and hearing the story they have to tell. He also made sure we did not fall into the trap of being lured into a nearby store and to go straight to MV Spices. We were so delighted at the... More

My daughter and I visited MV Spices Clock Tower branch during our visit to Jodhpur. There were lots of other spice stores in the bazaar but I'm glad we insisted on going to this one. We enjoyed the explanation of the different blends and smelling each one. Don't sniff too deeply! The wonderful Neelam gave us chai and told us... More

We followed Lonely Planet to get here and had a great time visiting with Miss Kavita. She introduced us to lots of spices and recommended what meets our needs. Definitely worth a visit.

Be sure to find the smells you came to India for - delicious chais, curries and other spices - hosted by courteous and informative staff. If you're in Jodhpur you should make the effort to search out one of the wonderful MV Spices!

I found this shop really interesting. It is a family business and they are really happy to show and let you smell the various spice blends. Their spice blends are very good indeed and they can ship. They don't put any pressure on you to buy. I have just received some recipes by email, so they are as good as... More
