Guilt-free low-fat paneer treats

Paneer is an all-time favourite with both kids and adults. It abounds in Protein and Calcium, a perfect team for building bones. While everybody loves to have paneer in various forms, ranging from subzis and tikkis to pizzas and desserts too, the joy is always peppered with worries about its fat content!

Thankfully, Low Fat Paneer offers a way out. While a cup of chopped full-fat paneer accounts to 1170 calories and 65 gm of fat, the low-fat counterpart has just 320 calories and 1 gm of fat. That is significantly lower, giving you the courage to occasionally indulge in your favourite treats without as much worry.

Some brands of low-fat paneer are available in the market, but to be doubly sure, you can make it in your own kitchen, using the method shown in this Low Fat Paneer Video. In this process, we have used low-fat curds and not lemon juice to curdle the low-fat milk, as lemon juice yields a rubbery paneer and also gives lesser quantity. Once set with this yummy low-fat paneer, you can go ahead and enjoy all the delicacies in this mailer, without any guilt!
