( Measurements in Cooking )
Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a wok and stir-fry the shallots and garlic for 2-3 minutes, until softened. Add the rice and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes.
Add a ladleful of the stock and let simmer, adding more stock as needed, for 12-15 minutes, until tender. Transfer to a dish, let cool, and chill overnight.
Heat the remaining oil in a wok and stir-fry the scallions and curry paste for 2-3 minutes. Add the squid and fish and stir-fry gently to avoid breaking up the fish. Stir in the rice and cilantro, heat through gently, and serve.
