The word Paneer is believed from Persia. The food item paneer is mentioned in anicient Vedas. It is best know as Chenna in many parts of India.

Indian Paneer is considered a true vegetarian as no animal products like rennet is added for the coagulation of milk. Rennet is basically the curdled milk from the stomach of an unweaned calf, containing mainly rennin and is used widely in curdling milk for cheese. Indian paneer devoid of animal rennet is considered as true vegetarinan and is a major source of protein for lacto-vegetarians which are the majority type of vegetarians in India.

Paneer in olden days are made adding vinegar or lemon juice and make the milk to curdle. It is then strained and make the solids to compress. In modern days also paneer is made in the same way.
