You might need to replace the processor chip
Most likely blown everything appart from the red LED
FTDI Cable or FTDI Basic would not connect to reset directly, but thru the on board DTR cap.
the reset pin can be something different as the 16u2 or FTDI chip is (to my knowlegde) also is also connected to reset for the auto reset functionality. It is possible that that also got damaged by the overvoltage on the reset pin.
Remove the processor and do the loopbacktest

3. Force the processor to remain in reset by connecting a jumper from RESET to GND
I connected everything as usual i.e Promini, FTDI USB adaptor and connected to my laptop. I then tried burning bootloader from the Arduino IDE but failed.
Do Burning Bootloader requires one to connect to SCK, MOSI, MISO pins of arduino
