For protein, you should get around 1.5 grams per your bodyweight and eat other items as naturally as possible. This will help you grow your biceps.
Protein: you should eat at least 1.4 – 1.8 grams of protein per kg of your bodyweight. The source of protein can be natural if you can.
Natural protein sources include milk, eggs, paneer, soybean, chicken, peanuts, beans, chickpeas and more.
In India we have lots of variety of food items to eat for bicep growth.
Fruits: apples, bananas are your friend here. You can also eat all seasonal food items that are available in India to eat. All these fruits are good for your body and for your biceps.
These fruits will provide you with vitamins, minerals which will help you stay focused on your workouts.
Fat: yes, naturally occurring fats are not bad. You can eat nuts, oily fishes etc for those healthy fats. But do not overdo it, otherwise you will accumulate those fats on your stomach.
Carbs: Chapati, roti and rice are the best option in India. You do not need to eat oats though but you can if you can afford it. And dalia is also similar to oats so you can also try it. Carbohydrates will provide you the calorie you need to do your workouts.[BB curl vs DB curls]
Veg diet for Muscle gain including Biceps
How to increase biceps by veg food?
As I said earlier, no food will increase your biceps. Foods will effect your entire body. Do bicep workouts to make them big.
Since I do not want to count calories and measure my foods, so I would suggest that you do not do that also.
As you are a vegetarian you will miss eggs and chicken for protein intake but not to worry you can eat soy, paneer instead.
And if you wish you can opt for plant based protein powders which contain all the necessary amino acids to grow muscles.
Every meal you eat should contain some form of protein, and you are good to go. And eat at least 4-5 meals a day.
