It is a kneaded or pulled cheese, and the art of the cheese-maker is in stretching it thin so that it yields a "chicken-breast texture". The cheese is often sold braided in thick ropes. Curd is given a hot whey bath, then kneaded and stretched to the desirable, pliable consistency. In the Western world, chechil panir is often called Armenian string cheese or Syrian cheese. Armenian refugees who settled in Syria after the Armenian Genocide of 1915 introduced it in the country.In Turkey, checil is called çeçil or tel peyniri, and is widely popular being specifically produced in Erzurum and in Ardahan.
