Neither. It is wheat grains that have been crumbed into small pieces.

should we soak the wheat,

No do not soak the wheat.

salaam.
crushed wheat means wheat porridge?
second thing is,can we use whole milk instead of evaporated milk or is there any alternative of evaporated milk?

W/Salaam, yes but not the flattened wheat, this is just crushed into smaller pieces. And yes you can use whole milk in place of EM.
