Pappu (“split pulse”) is the name of an exogamous sept (family) of the Balijas (a trading caste of the Telugu country). The Balija people are Kshatriyas of the Lunar Race. The name Balija is said to be derived from the Sanskrit bali (a sacrifice) and ja (born), signifying that the Balijas owe their origin to the performance of a yagam.Source: Project Gutenberg: Castes and Tribes of Southern India, Volume 1
