TAMATAR MALAI KORMA FOR INTERNATIONAL FOOD LEAGUE

I was really feeling bad because i had missed open sesame 1 as i was on blog break,..and yes recipe marathon too,..then siri told me about open sesame two,..thus the guessing the riddle began,..
i chose box number 2 and this is the riddle which i got
For Box 2: here is ur riddle:
I think I am a pleased woman since I blush so much
I am so soft and shiny to your delicate touch
But look what I have for relatives, so different with no common string
one used for smoking, one for hotness, one used to refer idler and one referred as veggie's King
I am not what you refer to me most often
I am 'fruit' of labour but never called one so
I am neither a wolf nor a peach in the scale of one to ten
but then why do you think I am called one as so?
I can go green with envy, or completely red with anger
A little crown on my head makes my walk look like a swagger
You cant do without me in your day to day cooking
Tell me what veggie I am without too much thinking.
Cheers,
Siri
i couldnt guess the riddle,got confused with capsicum she sent me this hint
and finally i knew the answer...TOMATO
