10 Best Paneer Recipes Cheers to local flavors! Indulge in the divine taste of paneer - the ever so versatile, humble and an all-time favorite ingredient we all grew up with. Paneer is a type of fresh cheese common in South Asian cuisine. In eastern parts of the Indian Subcontinent, it is generally called chhena. It's a special favorite with North Indians.

It can be easily made at home with milk and is completely vegetarian. Since it is made with milk, it is naturally loaded with calcium. With it's delicate milky flavour, paneer can be used in curries or served grilled as a side. In Bengal fresh paneer or chhena is used to make some of the much-loved desserts like rasgulla, rasmalai, chenna murki and many more.

Quick Tip:
In the market you will find soft as well as hard cottage cheese. Though the soft one is preferred by many, one must remember soft cottage cheese stays fresh for a lesser duration as compared to the hard one.

Here are our 10 best paneer recipes that will bring back warm memories and tickle your taste buds.
