I am trying to do some plots for determining the range of higgs mass. Can somebody tell me how to plot higgs mass 'm_h' versus tan β ? or 'm_h' versus spectral index 'n_s' ?

Your question is hopelessly vague. What are you talking about? You mention tan beta which makes me think you are talking about some minimal supersymmetry model, but other than that there is little hope for anyone to understand what you want and therefore help you.

Dear kurros, thanks for taking interest. The authors of the following paper
http://arxiv.org/abs/1108.0070
claim that from this model, they have plotted higgs mass 'm_h' versus tan β and 'm_h' versus spectral index 'n_s' . But I am unable to find any equations/formulas through which I can reproduce them.

The authors explain what they are doing in their paper - see Eqn. 25.

thanks vanadium but the problem is that they determine the higgs mass in the following paper of theirs
arxiv.org/abs/1108.3762
but I am not able to understand how to plot the graphs in Fig 1 of this paper.

They say they calculate it along the lines of reference 14.

The references are there for a reason - you need to follow them like a trail of breadcrumbs to get the answer.
