Yes these are indeed the best methods to root this phone.
Also, note that Magisk will not work for the stock MIUI because the phone has Android 4.4 and Magisk probably requires 5.0+. So, Magisk should be used for newer custom ROMs.

Also, like you had said earlier, if you don't have a PC due to some reason, you can use another phone or tablet for that purpose (to flash the custom recovery). I've read somewhere that most Android devices having 5.0 and below came preloaded with adb fastboot binaries (for newer Android phones, you can easily obtain the binaries online and add them into the /system/bin folder if it is rooted) and hence you can connect your Redmi to this other device using an OTG cable and use the shell (any terminal app) to issue the commands. The only important thing to be considered in this approach is that the other (host) device should have a big enough battery to be able to provide sufficient current to the Redmi phone such that it should not get disconnected during the process.
This method is usually ignored by people, but it really works.

Code:
$ fastboot reboot recovery
fastboot: usage: unknown reboot target recovery
Cannot issue the last command.

When I flash TWRP and reboot nothing happens. Same Mi Recovery is present.

I am on MIUI 9. Not rooted. I am trying to get a custom recovery but I fail. Please help.

Are you sure recovery was flashed properly?
Try this while in fastboot mode :-
  1. Code:
    fastboot devices
    Make sure that your device is listed properly.
  2. Try this
    Code:
    fastboot erase recovery
    fastboot flash recovery <path to recovery img>
    Then reboot using
    Code:
    fastboot reboot recovery
  3. If still doesn't work out, try to directly boot into recovery image
    Code:
    fastboot boot <path to recovery img>
  4. If still doesn't work out, then there might be a problem with the fastboot binary on the PC, try to reinstall the latest version of it on the PC and try again.

If the issue is specific to TWRP Recovery, try to flash other recoveries. For example, older version of TWRP or maybe try Philz Touch recovery as well.

Yes, the fastboot devices is being listed. Still #2 didn't work. But #3 worked perfectly.

So for me flashing recovery didn't work. I had to temporarily boot into the recovery and then again flash the recovery from there.

Thank you for the help.
