Tamil term translation

Does anyone know how to say "home grown" in an Indian language that was spoken under British colonial rule? Tamil is my preference, but after coming up blank after more than an hour of Googling maybe I can't afford to be that fussy.

The dictionary sites found nothing. I did find sites to machine-translate the word into written Tamil, though the fact that it wasn't in the dictionary makes me worry that it is not a real word, but I can't get the transliteration sites to re-Romanize it since I don't have a Tamil keyboard and font. Cut and paste, for some reason, does not love me.

It's for a steampunk story, and it will be the name of a political movement, if that makes a difference.
