While paneer is packed with healthy fats and protein and is a favourite of many, replacing it with tofu comes with its own benefits.
“Both paneer and tofu are packed with healthy fats and protein. However, 100 grams of tofu contains 76 calories, whereas paneer may contain as good as 260 calories per 100 grams,” said Tanvi Gulati, a nutritionist in an Instagram post.
Sharing a low-calorie substitute to paneer bhurji, Tanvi wrote, “Soya is rich in healthy carbs, essential amino acids, vitamin B1 and low in fats, which makes it a healthier alternative for weight watchers, diabetics, and fitness enthusiasts.”
