Low Fat Paneer

Don't ever feel guilty again when you eat paneer. Here is a low fat paneer recipe tried and tested by me several times.

Recipe source : Tarla Dalal

Makes 200 gm paneer (approx.)


1 liter milk (low fat)

2 cups curd (slightly sour)


1. Bring the milk to a boil.

2. Add curd and keep stirring.

3. Once the milk starts curdling and you see the whey, switch off the gas.

4. Strain in a muslin cloth. This is crumbled paneer/ cream cheese.

5. Keep a weight on the paneer till all the liquid drains out.

6. Store in the fridge after an hour. This can be be cut into cubes and used like your regular paneer.


When using low fat milk for making paneer, adding curds gives better texture and slightly more quantity of paneer.


  1. Great work, a much needed idea of making lowfat paneer. Fan of your cooking knowledge.
