The plant Curcuma caesia, also referred to as kali haldi, is a member of the Zingiberaceae family. South East Asia's black turmeric is a rare endemic plant that also plays a significant role in traditional medicine. The north-east, central India, the Papi Hills of the East and West Godavari, and Andhra Pradesh all have access to this plant. The fresh and dried rhizomes of Curcuma cassia are used in traditional medicine to treat leucoderma, asthma, tumours, piles, bronchitis, bruising, and other conditions. Numerous therapeutic properties of curcuma caesia, including antioxidant, antibacterial, antipyretic, larvicidal, insecticidal, antimicrobial, wound healing, and anti-hyperglycemic, have been professionally investigated. The current study aims to provide a thorough overview of the literature on its phytochemistry, historical applications, and therapeutic research.
