In Telugu, the language of Andhra Pradesh (a state in southern India), the word means lentil. Pappu is also used as a derogatory term for a member of the Brahmin community (priestly caste). The connection lies in the fact that traditionally Brahmins were supposed to be vegetarians and their diet had a lot of lentils. However, the two pappu people I knew in college were both meat eaters. Despite changing food preferences, the epithet is quite popular.
