Add the ground turkey, egg, garlic, parsley, cooked rice, paprika, salt, pepper, cumin, oregano, olive, and cayenne. You can use a fork or your hands for mixing the ingredients together. Do not mash it thoroughly. Make small balls by scooping small portions from the mixture. Shape the balls with your hand. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Place the meatballs in a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.
For the sauce, take a saucepan and add chicken broth and tomato sauce. Mix it together and add the meatballs to the mixture. In another bowl, whisk paprika and vinegar with the creme fraiche. Add the cheese mixture to the pan. Put the flame in medium-high and reduce to low. Simmer-cook the preparation for at least 1 hour or until the meatballs are tender. If you notice the sauce getting dry, add ½ cup water or broth. Once the meatballs are cooked and the sauce reaches a thick consistency, remove from heat. Add salt, parsley, and pepper as required.
