You have to let the dough rest for 20 minutes after it is mixed and before steaming. A teaspoon each of baking soda and lemon juice should be added to the dough right before cooking but after the rest. This should make your dhokla soft.

You can use soda water to make the batter. Also you can add fruit salt just before cooking to make the dhokla soft.
