Didn't thought they would screw up somethign like this even with recovery email.
Recovery email option is practically useless for google services, having a linked mobile number is the minimum followed by must have backup recovery codes. I have seen people lost their gmail account because unable to receive otp on linked number due to some sim/service provider issue.

I got in.
I don't know what happened, just tried logging in using account recovery and it let me in. Tried with USB dongle (btw, it didn't work when I tried earlier).

Now I am trying to do what @whitestar_999 suggested, but there don't seems to be an option for backup code for me. Do I have to add mobile number as well? Before setting up for Backup codes?

Figured out how to setup backup codes.
Thank you, everyone.
Good to know your issue is resolved finally. Make sure to keep those backup recovery codes safe(I suggest writing them down in a diary which is always kept at home & maybe one on a piece of paper you carry with you always).
