Cottage cheese is fresh cheese curd. It is drained and not pressed, so some whey remains and individual curds remain loose. These are different from Indian Cottage cheese/paneer which is pressed to remove most of the whey.
Cottage cheese comes in three major varieties: small-curd, medium-curd and large-curd. Curd size is the size of chunks in cottage cheese.
These are excellent source of proteins. Each 1/2 cup of cottage cheese contains 12g of protein (source: wikipedia).
