For Sugar syrup:

Boil the water and sugar in a sauce pan, stir to dissolve the sugar, add the milk and when the scum rises to the top, remove it.

Important Notes:

It keeps well for seven days in room temperature itself.

The boondi takes in a lot of ghee so drain each batch of boondi over tissue paper for absorbing extra ghee.

For deep frying of boondi, instead of desi(pure) ghee  you can also use vanaspati ghee/oil/desi ghee plus vanaspati ghee.

If your grater is very fine, then you can avoid blending the boondi to coarse powder.

Ensure that you attain 1 string consistency of sugar else you will not be able to prepare ladoo. 

Put some drops of syrup on the back side of bowl & if it coats the surface of bowl without dripping it, its mean that sugar syrup is ready for preparing laddoos

Oil your hands with ghee to keep from sticking.

You can also use Saffron in place of orange color.

Some suggestion for serving: 

For Sweet boondies: Decorate the boondies with cut almonds and pistachios.

Garnish with chocolate gnash.

Present with vanilla dessert. 

Different ways to serve boondi:  

With yogurt to make raita a prominent side dish. (To serve Boondies as raita or salted snack don't include the boondi in sugar syrup. They make a crunchy dish.)
Serve them as salted snack adding chat masala.
