Low fat paneer made from low fat milk and low fat curds contains more protein and calcium than full fat paneer. This recipe yields 1 cup of grated, crumbled or cubed paneer. Using curds instead of lemon juice not only gives more amount of paneer comparatively but also renders it soft. Use freshly made paneer to get better results.

Is the carb content right? It doesn''t make sense, where does all the carb comes from? If I use lemon instead of yogurt, will I be able to eliminate carbs?

Tarla Dalal    Esha, there are about 4.5 cups milks to make 1 cup paneer and that is why the carb content is high. We will run a check again shortly. Replacing lemon instead of curd is not a good idea as the paneer can turn chewy.
