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, since it does not require the use of rennet, it's completely vegetarian. Paneer (cottage cheese) has a delicate milky flavour and is used in a  variety dishes from curries to desserts to sides. It is a natural source of vitamin D and calcium. Homemade paneer contains lesser calories.

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.
