Abstract: Medicine is food and food is medicine” is the best way to describe on how the ailments were cured by using the plants during the ancient period of time. The “Magical plant of Indian Spice” (Murraya koenigii) has served human kind not only as food enhancer but also serve as village or folk medication to cure many disorders, the tribal communities has used many parts of the Murrayakoenigiito cure them diseases. Pigeonpea [Cajanuscajan(L.) Millsp.]Pigeon pea (Arhar) commonly known as Red gram or tur is a very old crop in India. The term ‘Pigeon pea’ was coined in Barbados . The present study is to determine the pesticide residue levels in Curry leaf (Murraya koenigii) and Red gram (Peagion Pea) in Tirupati , Chittoor region.
