Every household has its own recipe of methi aloo, however here's a great mughlai recipe that uses paneer along with fenugreek leaves.

Methi Paneer can be given more flavour by adding some kasuri methi. Milk and sugar are used to balance the bitterness of the methi. All in all a completely lip smacking preparation which goes well with Rotis .
