Panyalam or panyam, is a traditional Filipino fried rice pancake. It is made with ground glutinous rice, muscovado (or brown sugar), and coconut milk mixed into a batter that is deep-fried.[1][2][3][4]

Panyalam originates from Mindanao and nearby islands. It is particularly popular among Muslim Filipinos, including among the Maguindanao, Maranao, Sama-Bajau, and Tausug people. It is commonly served during special occasions and religious holidays (notably during Hari Raya).[2][3] It is also a traditional dish among native Christian and animist Lumad groups, like the Mansaka and non-Islamized communities of the Sama-Bajau.[5][6]
