The phytochemical analysis tests such as test for carbohydrates, flavanoids, alkaloids and terpenoids were done using the extract of above mentioned spices. The phenolic content was measured using folin ciolcaletu’s reagent. The phytochemicals such as phylobattaninns, carbohydrates, flavanoids, alkaloids and terpenoids were present in the collected indigenous spices.
