If you don't eat any animal or animal products, it will be much more challenging to get enough complete protein sources. If you can supplement with whey/casein you are ok. By the way, cottage cheese (especially the dry curd) is a very good source of protein as well.

I think a bigger challenge is balancing your carb to fat ratios. I'm assuming you're East Indian (sorry if my assumption is wrong). The traditional Indian diet can be quite high in carbs. If your diet is high in carbs, you will need to bring your protein and fat ratios down. If you add nuts/seeds as protein sources, they are high in fat. So then you will have to bring down your ratio of carbs.
