Paneer is a fresh, unsalted white cheese, which requires no ageing or culturing, and is very easy to make at home. It is very versatile, and an all-time favourite ingredient from my time growing up in India.

I have created a video on How to make Paneer on my YouTube channel Food with Chetna

I have written a feature for on how to make Paneer at home and tips on how to use it.

Paneer has a mild, milky flavour and a dense crumbly texture that goes beautifully well with strong spicy flavours used in many classic Indian dishes. It is a star ingredient in some of my favourite dishes like saag paneer (spinach), shahi paneer (cream, tomatoes and spices), and mattar paneer (peas and tomatoes).
