#1 The first step is to boil two tomatoes in two cups of water on medium-high heat for roughly 5-7 minutes. Bring it to a boil until the tomatoes are cooked. You can see the outer covering coming off when the tomato is cooked.

How Long To Refrigerate Nepali Tomato Achar?
You can store Nepali tomato ko achar in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to five days. I won’t refrigerate more than that.
After a certain number of days, it won’t taste as fresh. There are other types of Nepali achar you can store for months. However, I suggest you consume this achar within five days.
