I know how to root using Nexus Root Toolkit, I want to ask about any alternatives like using adb shell or other method.

First, you need to set up Android SDK Tools(here), you'll only need to install "Android Platform-tools".
Download SuperSU and put it in your device's storage.

Download the latest version of TWRP Recovery : For WiFi(grouper) or For 3G(tilapia)
Place the downloaded image in: "C:\Users\#YOURUSERNAME#\AppData\Local\Android\andr oid-sdk\platform-tools" this is the default Android SDK installation directory for platform-tools, might be different for you.

Power on your Nexus by pressing the Power+VolumeDown buttons while it's booting up. Connect it to your computer using your MircroUSB.

Navigate to "C:\Users\#YOURUSERNAME#\AppData\Local\Android\andr oid-sdk\platform-tools", hold the Shift key and right-click anywhere in the blank regions of the window. Choose "Open command window here", and then type:

fastboot flash recovery NAMEOFYOURRECOVERYFILE.img

Once done hold Power+VolumeDown, then select Recovery.

One you're in TWRP, choose Install and then install the SuperSU zip file you downloaded earlier.

Tada! That's all.

P.S: I personally prefer TWRP and SuperSU, you may install any other superuser application or recovery using this method.
