The current study is aimed at standardizing KK curnam and two of its dosage forms like Kutinir and extract granule employing pharmacognostic and chemical analyses. Methods: Kirampu kutintr (KK) and Kirampu kutinir extract granules (KEG) were analysed for pharmacopoeial standards following standard procedures. Results: The macroscopy and powder microscopy correlated with standards and matched with their characters. Both HPTLC photo documentation and densitometric scan revealed that the KEG comprises of the said ingredients. It also divulges that KEG and KK are of same bands and same pattern. Conclusion: The reported results will be supportive for standardization and future studies of KK.
