1)One can use store brought cracked wheat. I used homemade cracked wheat.
2)I like less sweet so added only 1/2 cup and 2 Tbsp jaggery. one can add more jaggery if wish.
3) I soaked jaggery because many times its has some fine stone particles and some other particles of dust which can ruin your dish, so if making any liquid dish using jaggery, alsways soak it into water then strain it.
4)One can use Panjabi shakkar or sugar.
5) Wheat kheer tends to thick once it is cold. You can add more milk to make it thin. just add the milk and cook it for 2-3 minutes.
