As you see a foot-soldier in state service would be called a 'shudra' by this definition. Cooks for king are 'shudra'.

So application of 'untouchability' is impossible.

Some Vedic Recipes Still in Use

1. Dalia (roasted and crushed black gram-lentil, cooked in water or milk)
2. Bhat (rice and lentil cooked together in a thick soup)
3. Kheer (rice cooked with milk and sugar, spinkled with dry fruits and nuts)
4. White steamed rice
5. Lentil soup (there are several types of lentils). Lentil soup in vedic time normally used only sea salt and ghee (clarified butter) as condiment.
6. Shreekhand - Yoghurt mixed with sugar and ghee
7. Til balls - roasted til seeds, mixed with sugar and ghee, and made into balls
8. Shak - any steamed vegetables - salted and sprinkled with ghee
9. Laddoo - roasted gram flour, mixed with sugar and ghee, made into balls

Java (barley) in Vedic culture
Barley was an important crop in Vedic time. It was considered very good for students and old people.

Main recipe are barley bhat and barley soup.

Roasted barley can be used in place of gram-lentil for making laddoo.

Importance of Sanyaasi

Sanyaasi (the travelling ascetic) are very important in the Vedic culture. They are the teachers of dharma to the general public, people who are not able to get an education in Gurukul. Sanyaasi (when invited) performed sanskar, yagna etc. for the householder, as well as preached the householders on various features of Vedic religion.

Sanyaasi were mostly old people who had completed their 'vanprastha' and taken a vow of Sanyaas. But there were also young people who had taken 'sanyaas' at an early age by skipping 'Grihasth' ashram altogether. These are called 'Naishtic Brahmchari'. Bhishm Pitamaha was such a Sanyaasi who never married, and lived to more than 250 years of age due to power of Yoga.

I am not Indian ..in this life...but love India.

I will say that I know because I have memories that I should not have, but as I cannot prove anything or any of them, I will say IMO - India was a greater, older civilization than is known, and settled Egypt. Almost all religion comes from India, because India developed the best language for expressing belief firs- it spread up, not down, into the middle east AFTER the great near extinction of people the last time.

The true history of India would be very threatening to the BIG 3 Monotheistic faiths, but really only in their power-structure and claim of being derived from the first people that "GOD" made.

The record of much of this has not been lost, some is oral and unchanged, thought people would not want to trust that linage for some reason, but a lot of it just needs to be translated and made available.
